What's the best method for measuring out a three meter plus warp? I do make felt from my tail trimmings but I prefer to keep wool wastage to a minimum On this occasion I'm doing a single colour warp with 160 pieces of wool. Tabby weaving on a ridged heddle.
For roughly 2m or shorter I just use the back stick and a peg. Some of my concerns for using that method over a longer length is keeping the tension the same across each strand and I will have to take my loom to an art space to have enough space. I've used a mill once for an 8 shaft but i didn't like how little number you can put on. Would a board with custom length pegs be my best option?
