weft

Weft (or, woof) threads are those base threads that run the width of a carpet or rug.  The weft threads interlock with the warp threads.  The weft threads are commonly (although not exclusively) made of cotton on a woven rug.  Weaving garments dates back thousands of years.  Leviticus 13:47-59 refers to mold infections in the "warp and woof" of garments.  Carpet and rugs are large textiles foundationally crafted upon warp and waft threads.
