In making any handwoven item, the yarn must be measured before going onto the loom. This process is called warping. While warping it is important to make a cross in the yarns so the sequence for threading is there and the yarn does not tangle. When all the yarn is measured it is removed by putting it into a chain. When in the chain form it can be stored safely without tangling until ready to be put on the loom.
Here are a few pictures:
