Any tips for softening up the silk after the scarf is finished? It’s really stiff. I did rinse with a little vinegar, but that doesn’t seem to have helped.September 14, 2019 at 3:12 pm #93893

I believe you can weave around 85-90″ per scarf but hopefully someone who’s woven it recently can give you some of their dimensions and suggestions. In the meantime you might want to have another peak Lesson 3.6.1 -designing collapse fabrics, 3.6.1, 26:35 – Jane talks about the shrinkage from on the loom to washed.September 7, 2019 at 12:57 pm #91227
I’m using the kit yarn – can anyone give me an idea how much length you lose when you full it? Trying to figure out how long to weave my first scarf. Thanks!September 6, 2019 at 5:08 pm #91132
My second scarf turned out so much better than the first. Tension on the warp seemed loose, but I kept on weaving. Fulled it for about 6 minutes and could have perhaps done a minute longer. But it’s absolutely soft and delicate. The (kit) color is wonderful. It’s hard to capture in a photo – but here’s an attempt. DebraAugust 28, 2019 at 3:19 pm #88573
I have an example of how too much fulling can ruin the scarf. I tried “throwing” the way I do when felting but it was too much.August 24, 2019 at 8:41 am #87424
You’ll be fine – keep us posted!August 24, 2019 at 8:24 am #87423
Many inches – not a foot. I used a warping board – I’m used to some unevenness (an inch here and there max). I have a feeling I stretched the wool when I was winding the warp and it tightened up when I took it off the warping board. I’m going to carry on and see what happens. As Jane says, “don’t worry. Have fun”August 23, 2019 at 8:34 pm #87353
Did you wind it on a warping board or mill? The silk shouldn’t stretch and your ends should be relatively even when you are ready to tie-on. My tension isn’t always perfect in the warp itself, and sometimes I have some unevenness because I work to get an even tension winding on. Hmmm …….. how much difference are you talking about? Inches or a foot?????August 23, 2019 at 3:54 pm #87334
Just wound on my warp – I’m using the kit yarn. I warp back to front and the wool threads are much shorter at the front of the loom than the silk – I guess because of the springiness. I’ve decided not to worry about it – just tie it on and do the best I can to get even tension. Anyone else have this experience (I’m determined not to call it a problem). Love seeing what everyone has done!August 23, 2019 at 10:09 am #87151
You could try ironing just the wool part and not the ruched sections. That’s what I’ve done with mine and it worked out. I just used the tip of the iron for those parts.August 22, 2019 at 1:37 pm #86381
In the”at the table” section of the Collapse Weave videos, you said you gave the sample a “light press”. When I tried that on a sample, it creased all the ruching. Now I’ve finished my scarf and not sure what to do. Thanks for your help!August 21, 2019 at 5:05 pm #85962
Your scarves are lovely. The Tsumugi silk is really beautiful.August 21, 2019 at 11:23 am #85831

The first of 2 scarves. I used natural Merino/Silk and Tsumugi Silk.
