Jane’s Master Sett Chart

Jane has spent her life sampling and testing yarns on their own and in different combinations, for her workshops and production lines.  She knows everyone doesn’t have time to sample to this extent so she is sharing the knowledge gained from that testing with everyone.

Jane’s Master Sett Chart encompasses more than 30 years of weaving experience, trial & error and extensive sampling with many of our yarns. This chart is an invaluable treasure trove of weaving advice.
