Warp

Warp yarns need to be strong and resilient to maintain integrity whilst under high tension during the weaving process. Cotton and linen are two of the best warp fibres available for use as warp.

We have recently changed warp supplier and so some of the designations and names of our warps have changed although all the usual thicknesses are still available. This is due to the count of the base cotton having changed. Here is a table to summarise the changes

 

Previous Name & Code

 

New Name & Code

 

Will the new version be the same thickness as the old?

 

Is this warp available in 500g and 250g cones?

 

 

6s Fine (CW616)

 

9s Fine (CW924)

 

YES

 

YES

 

6's Medium (CW612)

 

18s (CW1824)

 

YES

 

YES

 

Our original 9s and 24s cotton warps and linen warps will also change their names in time and we will update the table above accordingly
