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 todayJanuary 13, 2019 at 12:41 pm #62724Betty.allenParticipant
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😊.January 13, 2019 at 12:16 pm #62719SheilaParticipant
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!January 13, 2019 at 7:46 am #62700
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 withJanuary 12, 2019 at 9:26 pm #62674
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.January 12, 2019 at 9:21 pm #62673
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.January 12, 2019 at 9:15 pm #62672
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 😉January 12, 2019 at 8:12 pm #62668
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 scarfsJanuary 12, 2019 at 6:38 pm #62667
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 offJanuary 12, 2019 at 5:52 pm #62658sophieabParticipant
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!!January 10, 2019 at 9:00 am #62290
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.January 10, 2019 at 4:16 am #62277carol1855wlrParticipant
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.January 10, 2019 at 12:22 am #62264
And we’re off for another exciting year! The first Episode of 2019 is now available – enjoy and let us know what sparks your imagination and how you use Denting.
