Warp rep spaces the warp ends closely to cover the weft, hiding it except at the selvedge turns. Warp rep is threaded on pairs of shafts, each pair weaves plain weave. Like one of its cousins, log cabin, its design possibilities rely on colors alternating in the warp. In the weft, however, rows of heavy and fine wefts alternate to accent the warp colors on one of the two plain-weave sheds.
Projects include Stop and Go Rep Runners, Herringbone Rep Totes, and Irish Beauty Rep Runner (8 shafts), and Warp Rep Mug Rugs.
