Fuzz Balls

Fuzz Balls — This is the result of insufficient size on the warp yarns (often referred to as a soft warp) lowering their resistance to the abrasion of the harness and reed. The fibers are broken loose and pushed back on the yarn forming balls of fuzz encircling the yarn. This contributes to very poor weaving conditions and often necessitates the removal of the warp from the loom.
