Use the Right Thread When Warping Your Loom

Cuts Down on Post-Weaving Frustration

By

When warping looms, one of the best threads to use is Nymo F. It's a little harder to find than standard Nymo, but worth the extra effort.

If you warped your bead loom with the intention of pulling your warp threads through the work when it comes off the loom (the "pull and pray method) then by far the best thread to use is a braided fishing line such as PowerPro or Fireline. Be sure to check the label on these when you buy. The mono filament lines, while great for fishing, I'm sure, will not work for loom weaving or loom warping and are generally not much good for other beadwork, either.
