Plain Weave structure

What is Plain weave?
A weave obtained by lifting the even no. warps at one pick & the odd no. of warps in the next pick. And the repeat contains 2 ends & 2 picks. Both sides of the weave are identical (1/1).

Write the characteristics of plain weave
- Both sides of the weave are identical
- Threads interlacing in alternate order
- The repeat contains two ends and two picks.
- The texture is stronger and firmer than any other ordinary cloth.
- It comprises a high production of the total output of woven fabrics.
- Each thread gives the maximum amount of support to the adjacent threads.

Weave, Drafting, Lifting and Denting Plan | Weaving

What is Weave plan?
It illustrates the interlacing of ends and picks in the fabric under consideration. In the weave plan, space between two vertical lines indicates as warp yarn and the space between two horizontal lines indicates as weft yarn.

What do you mean by drafting or looming plan?
A draft indicates the number of healds used to produce a definite design and the order in which the warp threads or ends are threaded through the mail eye of the healds. In the drafting plan, space between two vertical lines indicates as warp and space between two horizontal lines indicate as heald shaft.

Formula number vs Repeat number

Formula Number
  • It is a kind of shorthand expression of the waving of warp and weft yarn.
  • It gives the information of successive floats.
  • The warp floats coming up are put above the fraction line and the weft floats are put under the fraction line.

Repeat number
  • It indicates the number of warp and weft yarns in the repeat.
  • The repeat number for the warp equals the sum of the figures in the formula number. And for the weft vice versa.
  • For example 1/1 plain weave repeat: 2x2

Comparison between Knitted and Woven Fabrics

Knitting is a method of producing the fabrics, where yarns are interlooped to form a flat fabric. Two types of knitting exist, namely, warp knitting and weft knitting whereas, weaving is another method to produce fabrics by the right angle interlacement of 2 sets of yarn –named as warp [longitudinal direction or length-wise direction] and weft [transverse direction or width-wise direction]. The prominent differences between the knitted and woven fabrics, machine and manufacturing process are mentioned below.

Take-up is the secondary motion of the loom. The process of withdrawing fabric from the weaving zone at a constant rate and then winding the cloth on the cloth roller as the weaving proceeds is called take-up.
