You remember what a mess I had (or at least it looked that way) the last time I wrote. Things look very different now.
That’s 466 cotton warp threads (the lengthwise ones) heading from the back of the loom to the front, with the heddles in the background. Each thread goes through one heddle, all threaded one by one. Not a speedy process.
From directly in front of the loom. The lashing makes it easy (relatively) to adjust the warp tension across the warp so it’s evenly firm everywhere — an essential foundation for smooth professional weaving.
And finally, a follow-up (two, actually) to the towel-wrapped messy warp in the last post ~
Next time ~ pictures of towels as they’re being woven. Some are already reserved.
