## What does PPI stand for in weaving?

Picks per inch (or p.p.i.) is the number of weft threads per inch of woven fabric. A pick is a single weft thread, hence the term. In general, the higher the picks per inch, the finer the fabric is.

## What is PPI in textile?

Fabric Construction refers to the number of threads per square inch in a fabric. It is found out by counting the number of threads in the warp and weft in a square inch of the fabric. Fabric construction is written as “136 x 96”, which means that the fabric has 136 Ends per inch (EPI) and 96 Picks per inch (PPI).

## How is PPI calculated in weaving?

If it’s plain weave, twill, or lace weaves, this is usually the same number as warp threads per inch. Then you multiply that number (picks per inch) times the number of inches you’ll be weaving the piece times the width of the weaving plus about 10% (for example, by 11 inches for something 10 inches wide).

## Why is PPI more than EPI?

Weft prominence: Weft yarns visibility/prominence in both side of fabric is seen. In case of plain weave, finer yarns are used in weft, coarser yarns are used in warp and picks per inch (PPI) will be more than ends per inch (EPI). Weft crimp may be more than warp crimp therefore, it shrinks more in weft direction.

“Sett” is one of those fabulous old-fashioned weaving words that might seem strange at first, but refers to something pretty simple: how many strands of warp yarn there are in a single inch of weaving width.

## Is sett the same as Epi?

The spacing of your warp is called your sett. It is usually indicated by “epi” which stands for “ends per inch” (also referred to as dpi which stands for “dents per inch”). This indicates how many warp threads (these are the verticle threads on a loom) you have in one horizontal inch.
