Exclamation 4oBBy

A Dobby loom is a type of floor loom that controls all the warp threads using a device called a dobby.. (The word dobby is a corruption of "draw boy" which refers to the weaver's helpers who used to control the warp thread by pulling on draw threads.) A dobby loom is an alternative to a treadle loom...
