Submitted by weaver1126 on Tue, 06/07/2016 - 14:03 I weave lots of rag rugs. Lately I have been getting a smiling fell on some of them. I need some ideas on how to avoid it.

So check how the warp is on the wap beam, are the edges of the warp biting into your packing material on the edges. If memory serves a smiling fell means that your tension is tighter on the outside warp ends, than on the inside warps and would be indicating that the warp is cutting into your packing material and tightening down on the warp beam. Feel free to post some photos so we can see what is possibly going on! :) Posted on Tue, 06/07/2016 - 16:22 Use a temple. Use a temple.
