So I knew this epic silk stainless printed warp was going to be trying but I think I thought the hardest part would be printing the warp and threading. I was wrong. So wrong. I spent a full 9 hours winding my printed warp onto the loom, with the invaluable help of Suzannah Thomson and Katinka Stützer. The yarn has a tendency to twist up on itself and tangle at the best of times, but add to that the dried dye sticking threads together and you find yourself in a real pickle of a jam.
There was nothing else to do but to keep a positive mindset (made possible by the assistance and encouragement of Suz and Katinka) and patiently work through it, untangling a section, moving the shedsticks through it and onto the next section.
Happily though we did get through it in the end and it looks so beautiful wound around that back beam! The threading has begun and is proving to be a faster and less back breaking process than I was expecting.
