weaving a rug on a rising shed loom question
I have a new to me AVL60inch Compu dobby Production loom. I am in the process of warping it for a 50inch wide wool warp and was planning to weave it in Rep to a pattern of Kelly Marshall's in her book Custom Woven Interiors. I think I have overestimated my skill level and have just read that AVL/rising shed looms are not suitable for weaving rugs. I have now read that warp faced, sticky warp (such as carpet wool) are all not recommended for weaving a rug. on these types of loom and that a rising shed loom will not provide sufficient tensionn. I am seeking suggestions/advice on how to best make this work to save the project. Has anyone successfully woven a rug on rising shed looms? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
