Aprons for Cloth or Warping Beams
Aprons are made of sturdy double-filled #10 Duck Canvas, natural cotton. Edges are zigzagged or hemmed to prevent fraying. Brass grommets provide frequent attachment points for either your warp bouts or the lacing for your tie-on stick. A steel rod in a pocket between the grommets and the edge of the apron stiffens the end of the apron so it easily handles the tension of your warp.
While cloth beam aprons are standard on all Fireside Looms, only our tapestry looms are delivered with an apron on the warping beam. Weavers can add an apron to their warping beam when ordering a new loom or on an older Fireside Loom they already own.
We are happy to make custom aprons for any loom; just provide us with the width you need.
