10 Steps - How to Warp a Loom

There are lots of different ways to warp a loom. If you use another method, that’s great! The objective is to find a method that is most comfortable and easy to use for you. I will describe a method that I use when warping from Front-to-Back.

Step 1 – Choose Your Project and Yarns

First, you will need to determine how wide and long you want your project to be and what type of yarn you will be using. For beginners, it is advisable to choose a pre-determined pattern so that some of the calculations will be done for you already. Some weaving patterns and projects are listed on our site. There are also many handweaving books and magazines on the market. Handwoven is a great source for ideas. Check with your local library, take a class through a local weaving guild or the many hand picked books we suggest via Amazon. And of course, if you have questions, stop by our Facebook Page where we will all be happy to help you get started.

Step 2. Determine the sett of your cloth, or how many threads per inch the fabric will be.

Step 3. Choose the correct Reed

Step 4. Calculate the Yarn requirements.

Step 5. Wind the Warp using a warping board or warping mill.

Step 6. Remove the warp chains and place them on the loom.

Step 7. Sley the Reed.

Step 8. Thread the heddles, following the draft plan.

Step 9. Wind the warp onto the back beam

Step 10. Tie the warp ends to the front beam.

Congratulations! Now you a ready to Weave!
