What is "Warp" - Definition & Explanation
In weaving a chair seat, the initial strands wrapped around the front and rear rungs.
In weaving, the warp is the set of lengthwise yarns through which the weft is woven. Each individual warp thread in a fabric is called a warp end. Warp means "that which is thrown across". Warp is spun fibre, originally made from wool or flax, but with modern industrialization it became possible to make cotton yarn of sufficient strength to be used as the warp. Later, artificial or man-made fibres such as nylon or rayon were employed.
Woven threads/yarn in a fabric which run the length of the fabric, see also woof
In all woven fabrics, this is the set of yarn running lengthwise - machine direction - parallel to the selvage and interwoven with the filling. It is the set of yarns wound together on a beam for the purpose of weaving or warp knitting.

A weaving term for yarns in woven fabrics and carpets which run in the machine direction (or lengthwise). Warp yarns are usually delivered to a weaving loom from a beam mounted behind the loom. Woven carpets usually have three sets of warp yarns, which may be wound on three loom beams. These include stuffer warp for lengthwise strength and stiffness, pile warp which forms the carpet surface tufts, and chain warp which interlaces with fill yarn to lock the structure together.
The set of YARN strands which run lengthwise in a piece of cloth.
