A Two-Harness Loom

In my last post, I talked about weaving. This is an old two-harness loom. The harnesses hang from the upright part called the castle. The levers at the bottom are used to alternately raise and lower the harnesses which pull different sets of warp threads allowing the weft to make a pattern in the cloth and to interlace the weft and the warp to make the cloth.
