Yarn Count Convertor
Converts different yarns to their equivalents in other counts.
Remaining Warp Beam Length & Weight calculator
During the weaving process it can be useful or even necessary to know how many meters of fabric can still be woven with the yarn left on the warp beam.
By entering some basic data such as yarn count, number of ends, tube and flange diameter etc. you can estimate the length and weight of the yarn still remaining on the beam.
This tool makes weaver’s job a whole lot easier!
Fabric Length & Weight calculator
By simply entering some basic fabric data as well as the dimensions of the cloth roll, this calculator will give you an estimation of the fabric length on the roll as well as the weight of the roll.
Cover Factor calculator
This tool allows you to calculate the Cover Factor of most fabrics. All you need to do is enter the basic fabric specification and choose the weaving pattern.
The cover factor is a parameter that gives an indication of how dense or heavy a given fabric is. It also allows you to compare it with other fabrics and eventually decide whether it is possible to weave or not.
Yarn Diameter and Count calculator
This calculator makes it possible to get an idea of the yarn count based on the yarn diameter. Or conversely, to give an estimation of the yarn diameter based on the yarn count.
