The Warp Yarn to Weave with

The warp yarn is most often a different, stronger type of yarn than the weft. Your weaving will only be as strong as the quality of your warp yarn. The warp holds everything together.

Some fine yarn and/or weaving suppliers have specialized stocks of weaving warp available on 'cones.'
