weft twining on a loom

Weft Twining on a Loom

If the twining is added to a warp-faced piece, the weaver does not follow the procedure for lifting and pushing down the yarns. No shed is made, no heddles are used. The warp yarns lie flat and even, and the twined yarns are carried across them. In both loom and off-loom techniques,when a complex tapestry-like design is being made, several sections may be worked on simultaneously. If the design is continuous and linear, the weaver takes the yarn all the way across.
