Indirect Warping Option
All standard rigid heddle looms will have holes drilled in the bottom of the rails so you can use your loom as a warping frame for the indirect warping method.
You can purchase a set of RHWP - Rigid Heddle Warping Pegs if you wish to use your loom in this way. There are 14 pegs included in the set, this will allow you to choose a variety of warp lengths.
Some benefits of indirect warping are the flexibility to use one thread of one color, it saves space, even warp lengths, better tension control.
