Ball Warping

The oldest system of warping. It is used for some coloured work, and where the warps are to be shipped or sold as ball warps. A number of threads are drawn from the warper's bobbins and gathered into a form of rope of untwisted strands. This can be done direct from the bobbins on the old-fashioned warping mill, or from sections from the sectional warper. This system will be described and illustrated under " Warping."
