Picture Friday- Weaving and Warping Board

Today I share a picture from Milan (not sure of the date).

Here we see a six shaft loom, winding multiple threads at a time onto a warping board and squished to the right is a spinning wheel.


I love the corrections in the writing underneath the minature!

  1. Okay, just so you know? Your posting this has actually let me get somewhere on the three months of research I’ve been trying to do online (and largely failing). I’ve been trying to find any reasonable sources at all for the construction of early 16th century looms, and this looks easily that era or older. For some reason nobody’s posted much in the way of cited articles on the subject.

    Thank you so much!
