- Sometimes a “fiddle” (fig 3) is used
instead of the piece of spunyarn. It is
a piece of wood with holes in it, and
loops of twine
which are passed round formed by passing the twine through a hole the alternate warp strands.^ round a warp strand, through a hole again, round the next strand but one
and so on. If long
loops of twine are
used, two fiddles
may be employed
as in figs 4 & 5.
The two fiddles
may be con-
nected by a
frame but it is scarcely worth while to
take so much trouble unless a great deal
of weaving is to be done. Two fiddles save
the trouble of threading the sword, which is
a consideration in a big mat. The sword must
however still be used for jamming.
