Winding white section of warp 003

The first step is to make the warp, the yarns that go onto the loom and are held under tension for weaving. This is done on the warping board which measures lengths of yarn and keeps them in perfect order.

In this video, I am creating a 13-yard warp of white linen. The distance between the pegs on the warping board is one yard.
