A mixture of science and art, weaving is nearly as old as human history. Despite the many technological advances in the field, however, it is still virtually impossible to control each individual fiber in a woven structure. To help you meet this and other weaving challenges, Handbook of Weaving covers every step of the process clearly and systematically, from fibers and yarns, fabric design and construction, and weaving fundamentals to the various modern methods of weaving, fabric structure, properties, and testing, and plant operations.show more
