8 Yards are beamed!

Leave a comment

I just finished beaming the 8 yards of unmercerized cotton for the bath towels. I did most of it by myself with husband lending two valuable and large hands for the end. I was fussy and spent a lot of time back and forth, shaking bouts and pulling tight and tapping ends back into place in the sectional beam. But what a lovely warp! and all ready to be threaded tomorrow!

In the meantime, I am considering getting all the equipment needed for sectional warping. Why not? I have the sectional warp beam. I think I have read that it takes no more time than regular beaming and might give more consistent tension. OK, maybe I’m making that up but it’s got to be easier than what I did this afternoon! So I will price out equipment and see what happens.
