Supplementary Warp Patterning
Turned Drafts, Embellishments & Motifs
by Barbara J. Walker

This is the definitive book about weaving with more than one warp. It is intended for experienced weavers who are familiar with supplementary weft structures and basic block theory. User-friendly descriptions show you just how versatile these techniques are. A thorough section on warping will teach you three ways of warping a loom efficiently with more than one warp, two of which do not require a second warp beam. You will be convinced that two or more warps are much better than one.
