Warp Chains - Step 6: How to Warp a Loom

warping board

Using a different colored yarn than your warp, tie a loop around the Cross. Then secure
the rest of the warp with additional ties in 1 or 2 yard intervals.

To remove the warp from the warping board, a warp chain is made. Starting at the bottom
of the board, put your hand through the loop that is formed. Bring your hand through and
take hold of the warp, drawing it through the loop. Then put your hand through the new loop that is formed and pull the warp through again,
forming a new loop. Repeat until you reach the end of the warp.

If you want to start weaving right away, you can place the warp chains onto lease
sticks and take it to your loom. If you aren’t ready to weave yet, the warp chains can be safely stored until you wish
to use them. If I am storing them for some time, I attach a note to the chains. I record
details of the project I have planned.

Type of yarn

Total warp length

e.p.i. – # ends per inch

sett

project width

doubling up ends into the same dent if necessary.

Step 1. Choose your project and yarns.

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!
