#FactFriday: Warping, part of the production process that takes place at our mill, is the arranging of yarn threads in long parallel lengths of equal tension, onto a beam in preparation for weaving. During the warping process cones of yarn are placed onto a rack called a creel. From this creel, yarn passes through tension and spacing devices and through a leasing reed which separates the yarn threads and keeps them in the correct order, before being wound onto a warping balloon. In the woollen industry warping is carried out on a sectional machine where each section of warp threads are wound onto the balloon, alongside previous sections #awhainsworth #woolprocess #warping #weaving #production #hainsworthmill #tradition #heritage #quality #bestofbritish #britishdesign #britishfabric #britishapparel #madeinbritain
