Here's the situation. I've got a warp of 10" width. I weave several items on it. I then decide that for the last item, I want to weave something that's 15" wide - 5" wider than my warp. Can I add substantially to the warp width? If so, how?
I've tried this in the past and failed. I'd like to do it again, so I'm hoping that the amazing weaving brains here at Weavolution can tell/show me how.
Some info that may be helpful -- I have a single warp beam. I've successfully added a few warp threads (like selvedges) and repaired broken warp threads without a problem.
So, assuming it can be done, a picture of your loom with this achieved would be ideal. Failing that, please describe how you add more than a few warp threads and keep them straight and at an even tension that is sufficiently taut to match the existing warp.
