Warp and Weft, or Woof.
 
The “warp” of a fabric are the longitudinal threads; the “weft” or “woof” are threads which run from selvage to selvage.   1
       
“Weave the warn and weave the woof,
The winding-sheet of Edward’s race;
Give ample room and verge enough
The characters of hell to traco.”
       
Gray: The Bard.
