The Weaving Story
From Yarn to Fabric

The materials that are used to make a weaving are called fibers. Fibers to make yarn and thread come
from things like cotton and wool. Yarns and threads
are used to make fabric.
Did you know that cotton comes from a plant?
Did you know that wool comes from sheep?
Did you know that we use things that are woven every single day? Imagine if you had to weave these things yourself.
Household
items
Clothing
To create a weaving you will need some type of a
loom
. A
loom
is a frame that holds many pieces of thread, called the
warp
, very straight.
Weaving can also be a craft or a work of art.
The weaving process uses the
warp
threads which are the vertical threads on the
loom
. The horizontal threads are called the
weft
, which is what is used to do the weaving.
Warp


Weft
Weaving is the continuous process of alternating the threads. In this picture, the woman is using the weft thread, and weaving over and under the warp thread.
A
loom
is used so that other threads, called the
weft
, can be woven over and under the
warp
threads.
Thousands of years ago, people all over the world created simple looms to weave cloth by hand. This tradition of hand weaving continues in many lands.
Today, we have factories that have large industrial looms that weave fabric for us.
