Rep weave is a type of warp-faced weave. In this version, light and dark colors alternate in the warp. The warp is sett at 36 epi so it almost completely covers the wefts. Our runner also alternates a thick weft with a thin one to make certain warp threads more or less prominent as it is woven. This creates a heavy ribbed effect and allows you to change which colors are dominant. The warp is 8/4 Carpet Warp in a light and dark version of each of two colors. The two wefts are 8/16 Heavy Cotton, double-stranded, and a single strand of Carpet Warp.
