The students then threaded the carpet warp back and forth through the corrugated tunnels, being careful not to pull too hard for fear the tunnels might tear.
an inkle loom * a shuttle, or flat stick, to hold the weft, or crosswise threads * two sticks, like popsicle sticks, to use as the warp sheds, or opening for the plain weave * a scissor * cotton carpet warp
or string for the heddles, or string loops that hold the alternate warp, or lengthwise threads * inexpensive, strong, smooth, colorful threads (a minimum of six different colors) - either carpet warp
or pearl cotton
