Weaving: From Fabric to Rubber Bands

Rhona Lewis

Weaving is a way of making fabric by using a loom, a machine operated by hand or mechanically, which turns yarn into cloth by interlacing vertical and horizontal threads. The vertical (up and down) threads are called the warp; the horizontal (from left to right) threads are called the weft. The way the warp and weft are woven together is called the weave.
