In Season 2 Episode 2-3, Jane shows us how to change out warp threads in a 10 thread zinger. Is there a limit on how many threads can be changed out without ending up wth uneven tension? I have a 75 end warp stripe that could be better. Could I do all 75 at once, or divide into 3 sections?
Hi Sue, I’m assuming you are changing the colour of your stripe with the same yarn as the stripe you want to disappear. I, personally, would not weigh down 75 threads together at the back of my loom - they wouldn’t be spread evenly as they reached your reed. I’ve never replaced that large a section of warp but I would warp the replacement warp in one bout but divide it at the back so it was spread out more - being careful to keep each section evenly weighted. Give it a try - you can’t lose if you are already unhappy with your warp ;-)
