What does a Weaving Inspector do?
Inspects woven fabric during weaving process to detect grease spots and weaving defects, such as broken ends, slubs, and coarse yarn: Patrols work area and scans cloth on loom for defects. Stops loom, ties length of yarn to broken warp yarn, and draws yarn through harness and reed, using reed hook. Picks out slubs and coarse yarn, using burling iron, and reweaves cloth, using needle. Marks grease spots and irreparable defects with crayon to indicate yardage allowance. Trims loose threads with scissors.
