Finger Manipulated Weft Floats

I was trying to come up with a way to integrate beehives spun into yarn, into my weaving. I realized this would also apply to a triangular loom. In a triloom I weave with the arrow pointing to the floor. I consider the strands horizontal to the floor my warp... The strands perpendicular to the floor are my weft. In order for my beehives to be at the top I float the weft over the warp...

Here is a picture on a rigid heddle loom.
