    I love getting the kits from Jane.  Makes getting to the weaving so much faster and enjoyable.

    In this case though to fine for me to work with.

    I have plenty if 8/2 cotton.  And I have Jaggerspun.       What weight tencel or silk would work with this and what would be the sett ?   Thank you

    Here’s my 3rd scarf.  I must’ve posted it incorrectly the first time – sorry.  The weft is 2-ply wool in charcoal, dove grey and cream white.

    The 4th scarf I made is probably my favorite.  Husband grimaced when I said I was using pink, but I like it.  For some reason it reminds me of old fashioned fashion, early Vogue, Breakfast at Tiffany’s….  Anyway, pink and cream white wool weft.

    Denting episode is so much fun!  I made 4 scarves; first using 16/2 cotton and the others w/2-ply wool just as fine as the cotton.  What a riot.

My samples were cotton (a few shots with sequins) and zephyr wool/ silk. Would  I open up to 20 epi or make spaces larger for a scarf  as the spaces were smaller due to blooming of zephyr?9B912931-FD08-4BF2-96AD-7491837C0B0F

    I love the episode with denting.

    Have a question in regards to washing and the feel afterwards.

    My sampled 16/2 cotton and 16/2 cotton warp with 30/2 silk weft, have great drape, but they feels a bit crisp. With the materials and the drape have thought they were softer. Used Dawn to wash them and followed what Jane did in the video.

    Any suggestions on how to make them softer?
