Warping Pegs – Warping pegs are used for measuring threads or yarns to be braided.   Pegs are clamped to a flat surface at the length of warp needed. For example: “Make a double warp by setting two pegs 36” apart; then each ‘lap’ will provide TWO 36” threads, so you will only have to do half the work. Each time you finish a group you will then attach a cotton tie on EACH side of the warp.”  (1)
