Quality Weaving Yarns

The type and quality of weaving yarns should be carefully considered before beginning any loom-based project. There are several weaving loom yarn types available to select and each has its own characteristics and benefits. One of the first factors to consider when choosing weaving yarn is the strength of the fabric and the project in which it will be used. Cotton weaving yarn is a popular choice as the material is soft, natural and can be left in a raw state or dyed and treated. Cotton yarns may also be stronger and thicker, such as twine or cable. Some crafters prefer to work with organic weaving yarns, as these materials are environmentally friendly, however, there are numerous yarn choices available to select from.

In addition to cotton, there are several other weaving yarns that are in high demand. Wool is an extremely popular and favorable weaving yarn choice, as it is extremely durable and secure. Those planning to felt their weaving projects will need to ensure they select wool yarns in order to complete the process. When considering various types of weaving loom yarn for your project, think about the strength and durability of the yarn. You will need weaving yarn for both the warp and waft of your project, and the underlying yarns will need to withstand heavy tension.

One of the easiest ways to determine the strength of weaving loom yarn is to hold a strand between two hands and pull with great force. If the yarn breaks easily, you can rule out using that type in your weaving products. Keep in mind that the thickness of a yarn may not necessarily mean it is strong enough to handle weaving projects either. Some types of cotton weaving yarn are stronger than others, despite looking thin. Cotton weaving yarn is available in various strengths and you may select a type based upon the project you are working on.

When choosing yarn, be sure to consider the finished product, whether the yarn will be worn on the body, displayed in a tapestry, or used to create objects. Some crafters prefer a combination of yarns in order to achieve the best effect in their work. When choosing warp yarn, always confirm that the yarn type specifically states it is for warp as this ensures it will be durable enough to withstand the demands of your project. Rug yarn is the best choice for those crafting rugs and trying to substitute other yarns may prove to be disastrous. If weaving on a commercial loom, then follow the manufacturer’s recommendations regarding yarn types and make your choice accordingly. Some rug yarns are suitable for weaving tapestries so consider this as well.

Those new to weaving may go through a trial and error process when choosing yarns for their warp and weft. As a rule, it is best to select yarns for both that are similar in thickness and size. This prevents problems from occurring such as having too much warp showing through in your finished project.
