dealing with active yarn.. collapse weave continuation
Well... it's being a learning curve. I'm finally warping that collapse weave project. Does anyone have any hints for dealing with the active yarns? In this case they're a Habu overtwist wool, very fine. It's on the loom and I"m threading, but I feel like I"m untwisting/unentagling the same threads over and over.. once to separate them on the lease sticks so I can count out a group, then again as they get threaded into the heddles, and I imagine again as they get sleyed. I supposed I could thread them as I separate them. Weighing them to keep them under tension get's weird because the clamp just spins around. I'm sure there's a solution. And I'm surprised at how patient I've become.. but if anyone has a tip. I'm all ears!!
