How to Calculate Braid Length

The formula to calculate the Braid Material Length (BML) is:

BML=FL×2.5\text{BML} = \text{FL} \times 2.5


Variable Description
BML Braid Material Length (in inches)
FL Desired Finish Length (in inches)

Calculation Guide

  1. Determine the Desired Finish Length (FL): This is the final length you want for your braid.
  2. Multiply FL by 2.5: This factor accounts for the material used in the braiding process.
  3. Result is the Braid Material Length (BML):

Example Calculation:

  • Desired Finish Length (FL): 10 inches
  • Step 1: Determine FL (10 inches)
  • Step 2: Multiply by 2.5 (10 * 2.5)
  • Step 3: Result is 25 inches


Desired Finish Length (inches) Braid Material Length (inches)
10 25
15 37.5

Just put the thickness in when you calculate the material length.

Can I use this calculator for different braid styles?

Yes, one can use this calculator for different braid styles.

Why do you use 2.5 in the factor?

The factor 2.5 refers to the material used in the weaving process of the braid.
