Progress on the linen weaving warp

April 6, 2012

linen warp chains

Tonight I made good progress on the linen weaving project.   The warp ends have all been measured and are hanging in chains from the hanging beater of my loom (because I have a cat).

There are a total of 386 warp ends at 7 yards long.  The ends will be sleyed in a 10 dent per inch reed.

This weekend, I’m hoping to get the sleying, threading and winding on of the warp completed so I can start weaving.  I’m somewhat nervous.  Linen is very “springy”.  Winding the warp ought to be an adventure.
