Warp Color Sequence

Preparation for Winding (Measuring) the Warp

When winding warp chains or preparing sectional warps, this feature prepares a printout that can be taken to the warping board or reel to help with accurately warping the planned colors.

Based on the threading and colors in the WIF, a screen similar to the following is presented. The print button can be used for a printout.

Warp Chain Winding Helper

In the example above, the WIF (starting at thread 1) calls for 17 blue warp threads, followed by holding a color named orange red and another named blue together and winding 26 times (for a total of 52 additional warp ends). Next there are 48 threads of blue, then a two-color alternating sequence of Aqua and Blue wound 36 times for a total of 72 more warp ends, etc.

As it is very common to use alternating colors, TempoWeave identifies these patterns to make it easier to accurately wind color pairs as well as singles.
