Mirrix Weave-Along 4: Getting Started
Warp: The thread or yarn that is put on the loom to serve as the base for your weaving. Think of it as your canvas.
Weft: What you weave into the warp. This can be anything from beads to wool to silk to novelty threads . . . whatever your heart desires.
Warp Coil: The spring at the top (and optional for the bottom) of your loom that separates the warp threads. They come in a variety of sizes to accommodate various warp setts.
Warp Sett: the space between warp threads
Shed: The space between a lowered and raised set of warps through which you pass your weft or your beads in order to weave them into the warp threads.
Shedding Device: A mechanism that serves to create the shed by raising and lowering alternate warp threads.
Selvages: The four sides of your piece.
Video about the different parts of the loom and what comes with the loom:
This device comes with the all looms eight inches and larger except the dedicated bead looms which come with a bottom spring kit instead of a shedding device.
Explanation of Basic Accessories (these can be purchased separately)
Bottom Spring Kit
Warp coils can be purchased in several different lengths to provide different warp setts (the number of ends per inch). You can either purchase different springs than the ones that came with your loom or you can purchase springs that match ones you already have to go on your bottom spring kit.
