It has 5 hooks mounted on the frame and center peg cross configeration to allow you to warp 5 yarns at one pass WITH OUT USING A WARPING PADDLE!
This week Judy came for a two day intensive more saori santa cruz class info here to learn how to wind a warp, thread, beam on and how to use her Saori "inside set" when she gets back home. and other things too.
Here is Judy starting her warp at the Saori warping frame. But lets go back ….
First she was having fun choosing any of the many yarns I have in the studio wall of yarns for her warp ...
Then we went to the out door studio where all the looms and warping frame and equipment were waiting.
Now back to winding a warp. With saori there is really no, or little, math to winding a warp. you need not to figure out how many yards per pound or same dye lots of cones. You chose your colors and textures and start winding! The pegs are spaced 39" apart or one meter , so it is easy to figure how many pegs you will need to use a scarf 2-3 pegs, Judy wants to weave and then sew some clothing so we chose 10-11 meters .
cross protector/holder here and the saori THREADING HOLDER that holds the reed and the harness away from the loom so it is super easy on your back.

Then to try on some of my finished pieces and muslins make notes and say good byes. Saori is more than weaving it is building freindships accross the miles. I have found a lovely new friend in Judy!
