Warp Float

Warp Float (Face view) — This is a plain weave. The defect is the result of two adjacent ends of one shed becoming attached between the harness and the reed so as to prevent the end of the other shed from passing between them. This prevents the proper interlacing of warp and filling and appears as an end out on the face of the fabric as the yarn floats to the back.
