Item details

In 2014, when I was trying to wind a short warp on a big warping reel, I thought to myself, "Why isn't there a smaller version of this thing for people who warp shorter lengths?" Rigid Heddle weavers, backstrap weavers -- it just made a lot of sense. That's when the mini warping reel was born!!

This Mini Warping Reel is perfect for measuring warps up to about 5 yards long. Each time around the reel is 1 yard, so for a 5 yard warp, you spiral from top to bottom. Turn around at the bottom and spiral back up to the top. You've just measured 2 warp threads while sitting in your comfortable chair at a table. Easy peasy!

Any length of warp can be measured because the top and bottom pegs are easily moved. Need 3-1/4 yards? Move the bottom peg. 4-3/4 yards? Move the bottom peg.

This tool is more accurate than the walking-to-the-end-of-the-table peg method for SURE!

Rigid heddle weavers -- tired of weaving one scarf at a time using the peg warping method? Want to weave fabric? This is a great tool for you.

Band weavers -- no need to use a peg, or your living room chairs, or anything else to measure out your warp threads for your bands.

Change colors easily either at the top or bottom and your threads will be in stripes will be in perfect order when you thread your loom.

Thread from the FRONT of the rigid heddle loom, threading every slot and hole. Tie onto the back and wind your warp on to the back beam. Tie onto the front and you are ready to weave!!!

SO much easier on your body than a warping board. Comes apart just enough to fold flat, then reassembles in 2 steps.

You will LOVE this tool, and measuring warps will no longer be a chore!!!

The Warping Reel came in pieces with no instructions so be prepared to try and figure it out. The wood has rough spots so fiber most probably will stick on those areas. For what I received the price is exorbitant. A few pieces of wood and a screw attached with a piece of tape. The only reason I won't return it is they do not pay for return shipping costs. I've spent enough time being annoyed already.

Very unhappy. No assembly instructions. Refund sent but for reel only, not shipping.

I love this warping reel! My favorite part is the bark which was left on the wooden "gears"! It is so lovely! Thank you, Mary at Fancy Fibers!
