Description: A wooden paddle with a rounded end. It has 10 pairs of matched holes along the sides.

Warping paddles were used to arrange strands of yarn or thread so that they would run lengthwise in weaving. When stretching a warp with a number of ends simultaneously, a paddle is often used to keep them in correct order and to facilitate the manipulation of them.
