Warping wheel

Yesterday, I learned how to use this rather large AVL sectional warping wheel. 

I used it to prepare all the vertical threads for my next woven fabric. 

 The lengthy threads are wound in 5cm wide sections following a neat sequence.   

Each section is then wound straight onto my loom under even tension.   

This job used to take me several hours before (sometimes days), but it’s sooooo much quicker and easier with this lovely wheel. I am totally converted.
