Panty Hose Trick
First of all, thanks to my friend, Dana, who told me about this when I complained about my last painted warp being so tangled! Dana has a degree in Fibers, so I should have asked her about this before I started painting warps....but who knew????
Scrunch up the panty hose leg (just like you do when you're putting them on!) Grab one end of your painted warp in the toe and start pulling it into the leg of the hose.
I loaded one pre-rinsed warp in one leg and the other warp in the second leg. To be on the safe side, I tied a knot in the waist band so they couldn't escape. Then I put them in the washer on low water level, cold water, and let them go through a whole wash/rinse cycle.
Afterwards, I just carefully removed each warp from their "leg" and hung them to dry. There were NO tangles!!! Such a simple solution to the problem!
I hope this helps!
