          Quick question from a relatively new weaver:  for the silk thread in hanks, do you first wind it onto a cone before use, and then wind your warp and bobbins?  Seems the easiest thing to me.  I bought the kit, so it’s the 30/2 Bombyx Silk.

            The easiest way (and most controlled way) to wind your silk is to use large bobbins.  Other weavers might have them in their stash that you could borrow or you can order them from Jane – Leclerc Styrene Spools with your silk order.  You can use them over and over again.  Jane shows us all how to do it back in Season 1: Episode 2 right at the beginning of that video.

              Hello! Relatively new weaver here from Northern California. 🙂 I’ve been watching seasons 1 and 2 back episodes over the past few weeks, and don’t recall Jane talking about adjusting the sett for selvedges. With dish towels and table linens I  doubled up a few edge selvedge threads—based on a technique I heard about in the Dixon book, if I recall correctly. Should consider doing the same for this first sample? I’m excited for this first project and will start winding my warp this afternoon—yay!!

                  Hi Dee Dee, I’ve very rarely double up selvedge threads over the years, but if that’s what feels right to you – do it!  On the other hand – Jane’s mantra as you weave “throw, beat, change, beater back” goes a long way to getting good selvedges 😉

                  Dear Jane and All – Just went out to my “studio” and looked at my stash – to my surprise I do not have any 16/2 cotton nor 30/2 silk! Hate to spend any more money on yarn – is there any other I can substitute? I have 10/2 and 20/2 cotton as well as 60/2 silk. What do you suggest? Many thanks as always.

                    I asked over at the video but will post here too.   when working with the silk, should the hemstitch be done in cotton like the warp or should I use the silk?  I’m worried about it slipping off

                      Made a small sample on my Jane table loom just so see what denting was all about. That was fun and I can’t wait to make a silk sample and then onto scarfs

                        Hi Sophie, I think the 10/2 cotton and 20/2 silk would work well together.  JMHO  Let’s see if anyone else weighs in on your question.

                          Which one did you end up using for your hemstitch fudsy1?  Are you happy with your results?  Your samples look great!

                          I usually use my weft as my hemstitch and because of the fringes/hem it stays put.

                              this is just the one sample before and after wet finishing..  I was just so giddy this morning looking at it all nice and dry. I have never made anything so delicate..   Later I’ll try the silk sample then scarf.  Don’t know where I’d wear them (we live very rural )  Another thought is to make several more small ones a dresser scarves and such.  We shall see what my imagination comes up with

                              Hi! For the “squish and kiss” scarf how fine a yarn is recommended and can you suggest ppi for the squish and ppi for the kiss?  Would there possibly be a ratio of 2:1 or…? I have some 2/14 alpaca/silk. Would that be fine enough? Thank you!

                                A wee bit of a scarf but so fun  .  The last photo is before fulling.  It was only 6” in reed and 4” fulled  .  But I love it and wore it to church this morning😊. C66F4F34-2690-4801-AE76-E6BCE1CBDC7E0F26F381-666B-4989-BD92-E458D7D43ADFFC5E3D9A-5F01-45A1-ABC6-5655EAEB5AB8

                                    I really love the color choice, was the weft cotton or silk?  looks silk…   I finished my small samples and want to move onto a scarf today

                                        The warp was Jaggerspyn/Zephyr that I had left over from a project in the past. I only had enough for a 6” warp in reed, but it was about 86” long.  Since I didn’t have anymore of that yarn I found some bamboo that was a similar size and used it for the weft. I think it’s really a fun project. It is light as a feather. I weight it yesterday and it weighed .9 oz😳

                                        arrgg!!  Just finished threading the heddles for my denting sample and realize I did not lash the apron rods together.  They are tied just at the ends to hold them together but not across the length of the rods…..do I need to care about this or just carry on?  Thanks.

                                            Creating that set chart is a great idea.  However, up to this point I hadn’t been recording Jane’s sett recommendations from the “at the table” sessions.  Any chance she could fill in some of those to help us get our charts started?  Thanks..  sue.

                                                Hi Sue,

                                                I had done that at first then scrambled for a pencil and watched again and paused each time to make lots of notes.. as a baby weaver, for me that is beauty of these being recorded, I can go back and watch and make notes even count repeats and take screen shots of things I like and work the pattern out.  She makes my brain hurt with exercise and I love it 🙂  happy weaving

                                                Hi all,,

                                                The reed required for the denting project has 12 dpi, warp ends dented as follows:-

                                                2,2,2,2,2,2,0,0,0,0,0,0 etc – giving 12 ends per 1/2″ in the ‘warped’ sections.

                                                My closest reed to this is 10 dpi  so presumably I should dent the warp ends as follows,:-

                                                2,3,2,3,2,0,0,0,0,0 etc – again giving the equivalent of 12 ends per 1/2″ section in the ‘warped’ sections.

                                                My only concern is that, with an extra end in two out of 5 dents, in such an open weave I may get some warp pairing? Or will it not be of any consequence?

                                                I’ll probably have to try this anyway – a new 12 dpi reed (110cm x 12cm) here in the UK will cost anywhere between £100-£140 (170-238CAD).

                                                Cheers

                                                Allan

                                                ps. perhaps I should bite the new reed bullet – from memory, you often specify a 12dpi reed in your projects.

                                                    I think there would be plenty of room for your warp to move around as you are washing it!  Why don’t you make a sample, see if you like the results and share a photo with us?  We’d love to see what you created.

                                                    I have a question about working with the silk.  My bobbin winder does not accommodate spools (I use a drill with a bit that holds bobbins).  I do own a cone winder (I don’t mean a center pull ball winder) and was wondering if you see a problem winding my silk skeins I purchased from you onto cones instead of spools as Jane demonstrates.  I can’t afford the electric bobbin winder Jane uses right now and need to try equipment I already own.  Thank you for your help!

                                                        Have you got a part skein of a slippery yarn you could test on your cone winder?  My feeling is that the most important thing is to wind it very tight on whatever you have so that it’s under control.  It will want to slip as you are winding your bobbin from it ;-(

                                                        Or, do you have access to an empty spool – similar to what Jane uses?  It might fit on the rod on your drill and you could do it that way.  That way your silk would be secured between the two ends of the spool. Let us know what works for you.

                                                            Hi Sandra,

                                                            I too was worried about slippage.  The drill attachment for bobbins is way, way too small a diameter to work on spools.  I have spools (from The Woolery).  I do place my cones horizontally when I wind my warp and when I wind bobbins.  I too thought a tight wind would be necessary to hopefully minimize the silk from slipping.  I don’t own anything else as slippery as silk to use for a test.  I may just have to try it with part of a skein and see what happens.  That or wait until I can afford a good bobbin winder like Jane uses.  Thanks for your input!

                                                                Carol at the building market they sell little plastic pipes which they use for insulating electric wires I think. They crimp when heated. I hope you know what I mean. I used them to increase the diameter of my bobbin winder when I still had plastic bobbins. (I prefer the cardboard ones). Maybe this will work for yours as well. They are easy to remove if necessary.

                                                                A bit confused here… Clarification needed before I start to use silk on this scarf…

                                                                I bought silk skeins from JST store and placed it on a yarn swift and made it into a ball… thinking I would then move it from the balls onto my plastic bobbins using it for the weft in this project on scarfs.

                                                                Is this how it is done? or is more correct to place it from the skein unto the cones…. I was given tons of cardboard cones when I got my loom, (never used them) and I am thinking how would I use these cardboard cones?  I have a sectional warp, have not used silk yet for warping or weft.

                                                                Sorry this may be two questions.

                                                                How to move silk skeins  into the correct form for weft? and how to move skeins into a correct form for using for warp?

                                                                    Hi Rita – the answer to your question is right at the beginning of Season 1, right at the beginning of Episode 2.

                                                                    Ginette has created and maintains a wonderful index of all the episodes and topics.  You can find it right at the top of the Guild episodes page.  That is one place you can often find the answer to your questions quickly so you can get on with weaving 😉

                                                                    For example:  skein – how to wind from skein winder to bobbin  1.2, 0:57

                                                                    In my loom room – silk is wound onto the large bobbins and stays there for use as warp and weft.  I tape the little label from the skein onto the top of the bobbin so that I know what kind of silk I have and the colour.

                                                                    0

I saw the video and am hoping this goes easy…if there are suggestions to make this an easier process please advise… I think I will put the ball into a large pottery bowl and see what happens…those early episodes need to be watched over and over again… always something to be applied as you go on this journey… thank you

                                                                            All I would suggest is that you wind the silk onto the bobbin slowly and carefully.  You don’t want it to tangle coming off the large bobbin when you are winding your warp.  Actually, if you are using 20/2 silk and using it for warp – wind 1/2 of the weight of the ball onto 2 cones.  20/2 silk works far more happily as warp if wound 2 threads together, which will work if you have it on 2 bobbins.

Then I wove 3 scarves.  One with the cotton warp, another with the 30/2 silk (my favorite). the last scarf was made with leftover black 2/18 wool and a mystery fuchsia yarn I found in my stash.  Once wet finished spread out through the whole warp.  It’ very shear looking and I’m pleased with all three.   Now back to working on season 2 Plaid E35D4ADF-08A6-4F6E-B2E8-C0ED9B72EFB9CF7D029C-8ACD-4A7C-95F0-9635583E01B6174E2801-F43E-42A7-8B6F-4750DE5B07BA82BFB755-630E-41E9-8252-22892C4CBE525F0D9298-5D3A-479E-A03C-FE382641915F

I’m not sure if it’s Bambu 7 or 12. I ordered the 12, but the label inside the cone says ”Bambu 7GG”.  Maybe alternate pics in cotton and Bambu would be more stable?

                                                                                                    I would do a couple more samples.

                                                                                                    I think if you resley your reed in 1 inch grids (16 threads threaded 1,1,2 in your 12 dent reed) and maybe have 7 empty dents. Also, weave 16 threads per dented section to make one inch squares.

                                                                                                    If you wanted to keep your 1/2 inch grids, adding a few extra empty dents in each of those sections might help.  Also, when you wove your dented sections, did you keep them at 8 picks per dented areas? Counting your colour changes, I count 6 threads per dented section. If they are 6 weft shots per dented area, increase them to 8 for the 1/2 inch grid.

I did a couple scarves in a fine alpaca/silk blend with some zephyr thrown in here and there. Totally beautiful HOWEVER I found that my selvages were on the “loopy” side. I don’t normally have any problem with selvages as I am firmly in the habit of letting the weft “take what it wants” to avoid draw in. With a more open warp is it necessary to keep extra tension on? I am thinking that is a reasonable fix but it seems a little counter intuitive.

                                                                                                                Warp is Zephyr wool silk in three colours; 12 ends per stripe slewed at 18 epi.  I wove four scarves, two without horizontal denting for gentlemen and two with horizontal denting for ladies.  One scarf has a black cashmere weft; the others Zephyr.  I had hoped the scarves which were dented in both direction would move more so the dark threads framing the stripes would become curved.  This did not seem to happen.  I washed the scarves by hand.  I believe I may need to process them a bit more but was unsure when to stop.  Would appreciate input on finishing.

                                                                                                                Much Fun and a great way to get the most out of expensive yarns.  This is the total thrums.  I unknotted the knots on the front apron and pulled the header out before making the fringe.  This i what was cut off the warp beam after the fringe was made.

                                                                                                                      I am using 8/2 variegated tencel and think your scarf is lovely! Would you mind sharing your set up?  I was planning on using 20 epi just for simplicity.  (2/dent for 5 dents with 5 empty dents) Is this what you did?  I’ve started a 3-1/2 yard warp but haven’t finalized how many ends yet, what did you have?  Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  The last time I used tencel was not a fun experience–so many broken threads.  I am going to use my table loom that has flat steel heddles so hopefully that will help.

                                                                                                                      Your zingers  look great!

                                                                                                                          Hi Carla,

                                                                                                                          In order to make the math easy I just used a 10 dent reed and wound 110 ends, two per dent, 5 dents empty just as you thought.  So 11 “stripes”.  I found I was starting to break end threads so loosened my tension quite a bit, which solved the problem.  Tencel can be a bit fussy.  Hope that’s helpful.

                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                          Thanks for the kind words.  I was pretty pleased with the way it turned out  Looking forward to seeing yours!

Hot iron to bring out the sheen. So much fun to start the year weaving holes in my cloth.

Selvedges are a bit loopy, maybe I’ll do better at that next time. Definitely want to try this with wool.

Loved the cloth that this created and will certainly make more. The drape is unbelievable. The brightly coloured scarves were woven from leftovers and odds and ends that I had in my stash. I then tied on some 2/16 tartan wool for the next warp and wove that with silk for one scarf with horizontal denting and the solid scarf used SW merino wool in lace weight and some Zephyr when I ran out. 11B79C95-B618-490B-993E-86411E2D0DB66E33EED2-FF07-47E3-B1B8-83686D9F3F2E

Using DK wool alpaca/merino with 12.5 RH reed, with 6 dents filled and 8 dents empty. My sample with 6 dents threaded and 6 dents empty didn’t have warp empty spaces, so I increased the empty dents to 8.

                                                                                                                                              Sadly, the final version didn’t have the open spaces between the warp threads but the weft had a lovely effect.

                                                                                                                                              Any suggestions on how I might achieve more of the empty square effect?

Still, apart from some wavy edges it is lovely and light and feels so soft. Next time I’ll do a bit better!

                                                                                                                                                      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?

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

Did another cotton warp and used, cotton, 30/2 silk and Bambu7. I’m surprised how soft the Bamboo is.

                                                                                                                                                                                            Sorry it took me so long to respond. I broke my wrest and had to have surgery.  I hope this doesn’t come too late.

                                                                                                                                                                                            I added the additional warp yarn by leaving the loom threaded until I was ready to rethread the entire warp.

                                                                                                                                                                                            Here are the steps I took to add the additional warp:

                                                                                                                                                                                            1)  I placed the additional warp on a rod with lease stick in place.

                                                                                                                                                                                            2) Rolled the original warp off the back beam chaining it as I went and using a few choke ties in addition to chaining.

                                                                                                                                                                                            3) Dividing my original warp into small bundles to keep it from shifting, I wrapped each bundle with thread and tied a knot as close to the rod as possible.

                                                                                                                                                                                            4) I positioned the additional warp on the rod at the area it needed to be added.  And tied the rod with the new warp onto the rod with the original warp.  Then I wound both warps onto the back beam together making sure to maintain equal tension.

                                                                                                                                                                                            5) I unthreaded the original warp in small bundles at a time, and used a slip knot to keep each bundle in order.

                                                                                                                                                                                            6) Working with the bundles from the original warp and the threads from the lease sticks of the new warp,  I managed to have the whole thing rethreaded in no time.

Something to remember for the future.

Warp is 8/2 cotton as is the weft in the first 2. The 3rd one the weft is silk. I’m torn between twisting the fringe or not, as well. Suggestions, input appreciated.

You could twist the fringes on one and wash it and see which one you like best. I haven’t added beads to fringes yet, but have seen folks that did it and they do look lovely as well. Maybe someone here has done that?

I decided to do the random beading on the first one with twisted fringe. Heading to the sink to wet finish. I will post a pic when it is done!

So, I jumped ahead while I waited for my yarn to come in for me to do the color and weave sample. Used what I had on hand to do the warp in 8/2 cotton.  Not sure I like the 8/2 and will try other yarns later.  The first sample from left to right – the yellow one is the last one I wove and it is with viscose linen and I really like how it came out.   After making some mistakes in the weft by not keeping track of the last row I had woven on some of the others, I was more diligent and careful with this one.   The second from the left was woven with 100% alpaca and I did not cut off between the rows and I did not like the wobbly selvedges – will take the time to cut – but it is a nice scarf.  The third from the left was 8/2 cotton warp and weft and really came out quiet nice with the exceptions of a few doubled weft threads.  PAY ATTENTION WOMAN!!! The far right was 50/50 alpaca wool and my least favorite as it is bulky and did not really show the separation of the yarns.  So, this was an opportunity for me to use some yarn up and to explore how different yarns worked in this piece.  Now back to sample 2!  I do want to make some dented scarves with some of Jane’s yard selections.IMG_1259

I don’t see a way to reply to you directly.  I appreciate your nice comments.  I started dressing the loom last night on the color and weave and ended up with some real tension problems even though I had done such a good job of creating the warp.  Jane makes it look so easy to just throw these things on the loom and I am like … I can do that easily … and then, NOT!  So I go back and watch the videos over and over again to see that ONE little detail I missed that caused me such grief.  But I will forge on and I am determined to get through these samples and get better.   Best to ya!

I want to weave several dented scarves in 2/14 Alpaca/Silk blend using it for both the warp and the weft. I cannot figure out what reed is best and then how to sley the reed. The recommended sett is 18-20 epi but I don’t want the scarf to be woven so tightly that it is stiff. Help needed please!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              I would put on a sample warp first and do some testing. The 2/14 is a tad thicker than the 2/16 and you also need to consider some of the blooming when you’re washing the Alpaca/Silk combo. I would go with what the Denting Draft is and keep the same size grids of 1/2 inch and spacing. You might have to reduce a tad the amount of threads per grid but it should all work out with the same spacing as on the pattern. They sound like wonderful scarves 🙂

I’ll try it using the denting draft and see how it looks. I loved doing the dented cotton scarf but did want to weave some scarves with alpaca. We have an alpaca farm and a farm store where we sell alpaca products made from the fiber of our own animals and fiber that I source from Peru. I’m always looking to see what I can weave with alpaca.
