    Jane said that when people have problems with linen, it may be that they are using a jack loom. Don’t think I want to intentionally warp a loom with a project that is likely to have issues. I’ll research some more before I invest in linen.

    Hi Karen, I think what Jane’s is saying (if I can put words in her mouth) is that she has never woven linen on a Jack loom herself.  If you have access to a bit of linen, why don’t you put on a sample on your loom to see how you manage.

    Is Jane recommending that we do not weave with linen if we only have access to a jack loom? She says she only uses countermarch or counter balance looms for weaving linen.

    Would it be possible to weave with linnen on the Megado or Octado loom.

    I do have a David also, so no problem, just thinking if it would be possible.

    Hi Jacqueline,

    Warping with one linen thread is fine especially if you only have one cone of one colour to work with.

    I know with silk Jane recommends warping with minimum 2 threads in hand, is this true for the 40/2 linen as well? Would it be fine with just single thread in hand?

    You’ve got it!  Jane probably warped with 4 threads in her hand which meant she needed to remove two.

    In this episode Jane talked about reducing the ends at the selvedge. So do we only have 22 ends at the edges? 2 per dent at the selvedge  and then 4 per dent?

    Thank you
