    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

    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.

    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.

    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 😉

    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

    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

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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.
