Tug of War

Even though the threads are now all tied in the right place, they are still not run through the works of the looms. So the next step is to pull all the old threads through the heddles, drawing the new threads through after them.

Just work a little handful through at a time.
 It usually doesn't want to slide through easily,

but tug gently and the knots will pop through.
See how fuzzy the wool is compared to the cotton thread used previously.
