Fabric making can and does include knitting and crochet, as well as lace-making, macrame, braiding, netting and felting, though the last does not use the interlacement of yarns to create the cloth.
Braiding and macrame in their various forms are useful additions to your weaving skills and can be used for straps, braids,  trims and edgings and can be made from your own handspun as well as store bought products. They use a minimum of equipment, which can be as simple as a clip-bord for anchoring the ends.

Braids made with a lucet make strong and useful tying cords, and drawstrings for clothing, bags and hats.
