Weaving Yardage Calculator – Metric

This calculator calculates your metreage requirements for weaving.

How to use this calculator:

• warp length includes fringe or hems and testing, etc. – be sure to include these when you enter your warp length – loom waste will be added during calculations; do not include this in your warp length figure
•when entering width, enter your desired finished width – this calculator approximates 5% of weft take-up as well as calculates your width on the loom
•know your epcm (ends per cm) and weft shots per cm
•shrinkage relates to any shrinkage which might occur during finishing
•take-up refers to spring-back of warp yarns once they are no longer under tension
