Types of Fabric Weaving Looms

Weaving is the process of making fabrics by interlacing the threads lengthwise and widthwise commonly known as warp and weft in a regular order. The operation is performed in a machine called a loom. Two sets of yarns are interlaced, almost always at right angles to each other. One, called the warp, runs lengthwise in the loom; the other, called the filling, weft or woof, runs crosswise. The raising and lowering sequence of warp threads in various sequences give many possible weave structures.
