I’m trying new yarns! My first try with 8/4 cotton was in placemats with warp prominent 8/2 cotton. Then I did some overshot with 8/4 as pattern. Listening to Jane talk about how wonderful 8/4 would be at 12 epi, I decided to try it with several wefts. I thought I would get a reasonable soft fabric with 8/4 warp and weft. First, I could only beat plain weave with 10 ppi. After wet finish, wash and dry, it is firm fabric. No negative space. Should I be 10 epi? Just want absorbent soft hand towel. I did try 16 epi with 8/2 cotton and woven with 8/4 weft and light beat, leaving negative space. That was soft and absorbent, but a little too loose. Thoughts? Yarn notes say 12 for sett.
You don’t say what weave structure you are using, Dawn. It makes a big difference 😉 Also, changing the weight of the weft will change the sett as well. Have you done any ruler wrapping to get the sett you need when you weave 8/4 with a different weft?
