Weaving supplies from the stationery store

I don't blog often, but this discovery is absolutely blog-worthy. I really hate it when my unused heddles migrate over towards the selvedge threads on my warp. I don't know if they're abrading it, but it sure seems like it sometimes.

I've tried tying them up in various ways, and then the string I use to tie them up gets untied and tangled up in the warp, which can cause problems as well.

So I was in the Japanese stationery store yesterday, and noticed these little paperclips.

They fit perfectly on the heddle bars. Easy to put on, easy to take off, and they won't get tangled in anything. That makes me happy.
