I am putting on my next damask warp. I had a pretty big issue with broken threads on my last warp and have not completely figured out the reason behind these broken threads.
I noticed when I was weaving there was a lot of piling at the reed. I noticed that the tape on the top and bottom of the reed, that covers the nubbly bits, is coming off. I think this may be one factor in the issue I was having. Does anyone know if this is a special kind of tape, or can I just use duct tape to replace what is already there?
