        Hi All! Loving the guild, it’s the best weaving money I have ever spent.

        A question about rep weave….for rep place mats am I ok with 8/2 unmerc. cotton for the warp at maybe 30 epi and if so what should I use as weft, 8/4?

        Thanks for any advice.

          Most of the patterns I’ve seen use something heavier for the warp then 8/2. Usually 8/4 or 5/3? and then for the weft alternate 8/4 or 5/3? with multiple  strands for the thick versus the thin ribs. There are some really good books with instructions and patterns.

              What would be a good book to start with?
