Warping a Mirrix can sometimes seem intimidating to new weavers. Because of that, we came up with an easier way to warp called the "Easy Warp" method. This technique can be used for any kind of weaving you can do on a Mirrix from tapestry to bead weaving.
With the "Easy Warp" method all you do is tie your warp thread onto the brass screw in the upper left-hand corner of your loom. Then, you wrap your warp around your loom, placing your warp in the spaces in the spring at the top of the loom as you go. When you're finished, just tie off on the other side. It really is that easy and ANY Mirrix Loom can be warped this way!
This way of warping has one main restriction: Your warp cannot be advanced for continuous warping (where you can move your piece to the back of your loom as you weave). This means the length of your piece is restrained by the height of your loom. The good news? You can then weave another piece on the back!
We recommend starting out using this method if you have any fear of warping. Then you can move on to our regular warping method with confidence!
