Warping and Threading Tools
Any rigid heddle loom, table loom or floor loom requires warping, the purpose of which is to measure your warp threads and align them so that they do not get tangled and can be easily threaded on the loom. Warping pegs handle very short or narrow warps; warping boards, warping mills - warping reels have a larger capacity.
With a floor loom, you have two options for warping:
- use a board (or mill) and a raddle, or
- opt for a sectional warp beam which allows you to warp by yourself, one section at at time, but you then will need other tools such as a tension box, yarn counter, bobbin rack and spools.
Most beginners start with a warping board and raddle. For information about sectional warp beams, see our pages for each loom manufacturer.
