How Cashmere Scarves are Made
Weaving Machine In Action
Weaving Cashmere Scarf
Weaving is the process of creating fabric by vertically crossing weft yarn with warp yarn
- Warp yarns(also called ends) are pre-wound on a warp beam and is fed into weaving machine. There can be thousands of warp yarns wrapped around the beam through a process called warping.
- Weft yarns(also called picks) are pulled by a shuttle that goes through warp yarn to create different patterns.
One Weaving Cycle Consists of 3 Motions:
- Shedding: Separating warp yarns into two sheets so weft yarns can go through. Each warp yarn is controlled individually, making all sorts of weaving structures possible.
- Picking: Weft yarns are placed between the two sheets of warp yarns with the help of a shuttle. Different weave patterns can be created based on how the warp yarns are separated.
- Beating In: Newly-laid weft yarn is pushed towards the fabric already woven, giving the fabric desired density. (END)
