I wanted a super soft blanket and I’ve been eyeing the Monte Cristo cotton that Jane sells for baby blankets. Nearby in her store was the alpaca. I know that blending plant-based fiber with animal fiber will result in different rates of shrinking. So the whole time I was weaving I felt it was going to be problematic–but the thought of all that softness kept me going. And it worked fine. I just washed it and lay it flat to dry and really no problem. The weave structure was 2/3 twill and I kept it loose. The warp is entirely Monte Cristo.
Did anyone else use another fiber with Monte Cristo? Janet
Hi Ginette, It took me a while to figure out how to reduce the size of my photos. Here you go. The alpaca is the light brown and the turquoise is a cotton. The Monte Cristo is plain weave and the colors are twill. I’m surprised it held together well, but it doesn’t. Send picture of yours.
