Some notes:
  • Dark/Accessibility alt modes coming soon
  • This sheet will not save any information at all unless it has a title that isn't ".". it should ask you for a project title when you load; if it does not, refresh the page while pressing ctrl and shift (or otherwise cache-refresh the page).
  • This page writes to local memory, which means your data's only accessible on the computer and browser you used to access it. The save feature will let you download your current instance of this sheet, so make sure to do that if you want to actually save your data.
  • This page is self-contained; saved copies should continue to work. Mobile users, you can't open html files raw, but if you make this page available offline that may work? some features can also be used on mobile dropbox.
  • this version of this tool has been hastily adapted from a different context, which is why the appearance is wonky; if there's call, I will program a more responsive version.
  • I make this tool and other parts of my work freely available becuase I strongly believe in information access; that's not terribly lucrative, so please consider sending a tip or supporting me on an ongoing basis through patreon.

    Warp Calcs

    Set the following:
    Ends per inch(EPI): . Picks Per Inch(PPI): .
    Finished Width: . in. Finished Length: . in.
    Hem/Fringe (single) : . in.
    (Doubled): . in.
    Floating Selveges per side: .
    FS are optional; 0 if not using

    Takeup, Warp Width, as decimil: .
    percentage / 100 = decimil

    Takeup, Warp Length, as decimil: .
    percentage / 100 = decimil

    Items Per Warp: .
    How many per warp? assumes same length; if different, make your finished length the same as the longest item you intend to make.

    Spacer: . in.
    How much space do you want to leave between each item, in inches?
    Sampling Allowance: . in.
    Loom Waste: . in.
    Use 24 for table looms or 36-42 for floor looms, unless you know your loom's specifics.
    Width In Reed: . in.
    (warp takeup * final width) + final width
    Total number of warp ends: .
    width in reed x EPI

    (Including floating selvege : . )
    previous, + (number of floating selveges x2)

    Anticipated Woven Length Per Item: . in.
    (final length + (hems/fringe x2) + spacer)
    (previous * warp length takeup) + previous

    make sure first value is a number

    Total anticipated woven length: . in.
    (woven length per item x number of items per warp) + Sampling allowance
    Suggested Yardage Per End: . yd
    inches: .
    total woven length anticipated + loom waste
    Yards: .
    previous / 36 inches
    Total Warp Needed, yards: .
    total yards needed per end x number of warp ends including floating selvege

    Suggested Max Float Lengths
    Eighth: . Quarter: . Third: . Half: .
    per percentage of single inch. Choose based on intended use. your choice as to whether or not to round up or down

    Weft Calcs

    Set The Following::
    Picks per inch: .

    use the ppi for yarn you want to calculate.
    usually this is the same as EPI. sometimes, such as for double weave, it is epix2.
    sometimes, as in for overshot and some tie weaves, it is technically epi x 2, BUT you generally only want to find out the amount for the pattern or tabby weft seperately, in which case you still do half of that (= the same as EPI).
    if you're not sure what to use, check, and/or assume same as EPI.
    Yarn per 1" of weaving: . in.
    Width in reed x PPI
    Weft needed for weaving:
    Weft needed for weaving in.
    yarn per inch x total woven length
    Weft needed for weaving: yd
    Note-- the more manipulations numbers undergo, the more speculative they are and thus the less accurate they are. These values undergo a LOT of modification.
    put another way: this is one of the least accurate parts of this sheet, and doing these calculations generally will only ever get you so far. IF precision is important, sample sample sample. This is to get you within spitting range, at best.
    Don't wanna fuck with this math? That's okay. Anticipate getting somewhere between 66% or double again the amounts of your warp, for your weft, and you'll usually be safe. USUALLY.

    Number of ends per motif: .
    If your weaving is functionally unique/has no motifs, just put the total number of threads here (not including FS) and put 1 as number of motifs per weaving
    Number motifs per weaving: 1
    accepts partial (decimal) value
    How Many Times Does Shaft X Appear Per Motif (and in total)
    1: 0 (0) 2: 0 (0) 3: 0 (0) 4: 0 (0)
    5: 0 (0) 6: 0 (0) 7: 0 (0) 8: 0 (0)
    9: 0 (0) 10: 0 (0) 11: 0 (0) 12: 0 (0)
    13: 0 (0) 14: 0 (0) 15: 0 (0) 16: 0 (0)
    Motif or Heddle Notes:

  • Note- ends per motif recalculates as long as its value is 0 or 1; it automaticaly assumes the motif is the full width of the weaving/total number of ends per inch-- to make it more useful, manually enter the number of threads per motif.

    Finished Measurements

    Finishing Process & Details:

  • Multiple Measurements/Raw Notes:
    1. per panel:
    2. Actual woven width:
    3. Actual woven Lengths/Length sections:
    4. Slack width measured on loom:
    5. Slack lengths measured on loom when advancing:
    6. full legth off loom
    7. wet-finished length
    8. wet-finished width
    9. finishing process raw ntoes
    IF you'd like to bother taking multiple values, you can use the above values for an overall/average type number and put the specific values that informed your those here and/or use this as a measurement log from which you derive the above/just generally, raw notes/log, whatever.


  • Log

  • Suggestion: consider adding tags (or a tag marker) so this is easier to follow/search in the future.
    if you need to functionally reset any of the calculation sections, returning its value to "." (that is, full stop) through a manual edit should work.
