  • Warp

    Also known as the lengthwise grain, straight grain, or straight-of-grain; the warp runs parallel to the selvage edges. It is made up of threads that run parallel to the length of fabric as it comes off the bolt.

    Selvage edges keep fabric from fraying. The selvage is tightly woven and runs along the outermost edges of the lengthwise grain.
