Project - ________________________ Date - ______________

WARP:
Project length Take-up Shrinkage Loom Waste Sampling? Total Length Divide by 36 ________ (1) +________ +________ (2) +________ +________ (3) =________ =________ (A)
item you are weaving x # of items/s

Include hems and fringes average of 10% average of 5-10% average between 24-36” total yards needed for warp

TOTAL ENDS:
Width in reed epi Total Warp Ends Floating Selvedge TOTAL ________ finished size + draw-in and shrinkage x________ =________ +________ =________ (B)

TOTAL WARP YARN NEEDED:
Total warp length (yards) Total warp ends needed Total yards of warp needed =________ (A) x________ (B) =________

WEFT:
Length of one weft shot Shots per inch (ppi) Inches need for one inch of weaving Inches to be woven (add 1,2,3) Inches of weft needed for project Total yards of weft needed ________ width of warp + 10-15% x________ =________ x________ =________ =________ divide by 36 (inches/yd)

Warp yarn = ___________________ yards/pound _______ Weft yarn = ____________________ yards/pound _______
