Re: sectional warp different setts?

Hello All
Be careful if winding different number of ends into each section as suggested by Alaire because the warp tension will be different due to the different bulk in the build up of thread as you wind on. This varies the length of the warp if you are counting by turns of the beam and can leave you short on warp on some wound warp bobbins and varies the tension once the weaving is under way. I use sectional warping most of the time and with varied warps I always spread the different yarn types across the 2" and sort as I thread heddles.
