Mixed fibre warps
If I combined 7 gauge bamboo with chenille what would you recommend for the epi and ppi?
I have combined them alternately in the warp. One end of bamboo/one end of chenille. You need to use plain weave because of the chenille and sett it at 12 epi and 12 ppi.
If I alternate the 7 gauge bamboo with boucle in the warp and weave with bamboo, what would you recommend for the epi and ppi?
I think I would sett it 14 epi if you have a 6 dent reed. If you don’t, then I would sett it at 13 epi in a 10 dent reed.
Would cottolin and bamboo work well together? If so what would you recommend for the epi and ppi?
I haven’t tried cottolin and bamboo, but I don’t see why they wouldn’t work. One of my other students wove a beautiful cottolin scarf and set it around 20 epi for an 8 shaft twill.
