        I’m having trouble tensioning the ten threads I added to replace the zinger on sample 1. Little tension – just cone the weft is straight but the warp is very loose and the stripe fells “soft” on the loom. If I add tension, even a little bit I get a frown. The more weight I add, the closer the tension of those strands comes to the rest of the warp but the more the weft bows out. How do I fix this?  I’m weaving on a baby wolf.

          Have you secured your new zinger by dividing it and tieing it around a pin on your old zinger, as Jane demonstrates?  It takes a few picks to get it spread and secured in your cloth.

            Thank you Sandra. I think my problem had to do with my brake. Once I adjusted that I was able to keep even tension on both the warp and the replacement warp threads.
