TITLE: warping tool (KOKLOE
HISTORY: KOKLOE or KOGLOE = KO neck + GLOE crooked. The same shape of the tool may seem "neck-crooked". KOKLOETSILA, the person who lays down the threads to be warped, is also litterally a "neck-crooked person": he walks looking carefully on the ground. As he spreads his threads to and from different pegs fitted in the ground, KOKLOETSILA means also "spreader of gossips".
