    You’re right, Sue. Mainly because you’ll want the interest of different colours to play with when you design your warp! Depending on your loom you will be loosing some warp in loom waste that isn’t shared by two scarves.

    Hi, I know I will only have time for one scarf and a sample but looking at the kits I presume half of each skein of silk and merino is used for each scarf. So I therefore need the whole yarn allowance even if I can only weave one scarf. Am I right?Thanks for helping.

    Guess I had a duh moment.  I thought to look at the charts Jane gave us.  It looks like one of the silks is 18/2 and one if I wrapped correctly is about 26/2,  It’s great to have the charts if I can just remember to refer to them.

    I hope this is the correct place to ask this question.  I have some silk but I’m not sure the size.  Neither has a size on the cone.  One is similar to Jane’s 20/2 on her sample card.  Maybe a tad bigger.  The only information I have is 100 grams/1,000 yards.  The other is 20/2 according to the website I purchased from but is it actually a tad smaller than Jane’s  30/2.  So I’m confused.  Can I wrap a ruler and determine the correct size?  How many Wpi for 20/2 and 30/2?

    I love the asymetrical bamboo and merino scarf. All my stash of bamboo is 7 gauge though and I also have Harrisville Shetland not merino. Would I still get the same collapsing if I used these 2 weights together? Perhaps bamboo at 12 epi and HS at 6 epi? Anyone tried this before? (I know, I know. Sample, sample!) I would be interested in any comments.

    Never mind – I found the list. I had never noticed it before. Thank you for sending me the link though!

    Thank you for the link to this list. I had not seen this page (Online Guild Season 3 Yarn List) before! Where is it in the categories on the website so I can find it again?

    Hi Nina!  You can find the list of this year’s sample yarns under Online Guild Season 3 Yarn List.

    Actually that brings up a question about the kits. I have been checking every so often to see what the yarn will be for the doubleweave episode coming next but have not seen anything about it – or any of the project yarns for episodes 7 and beyond. I’ve been thinking that I need to check my stash or order yarns for episode 7 but I don’t know what yarns will be used. If I am going to order the kits I’d like to order more than 1 at a time to save a little on postage to the US.

    Please let me know if I am not checking the right place on the website – so far I have been clicking on “Online Guild” then “Buy Season 3 kits”.

    Thanks Judy for the question. I was expecting double weave too.

    Hi Judy,

    Oh so sorry about that! The original order is Episode 6 – Simple Collapse Weave & Episode 7 – Double Weave. We’ll get that changed today on that page.

    Thanks Sandra,

    This looks great but I have the Harrisville yarn ready to go for the Double Weave Shawl listed on your site under the yarns for Episode 6. Has there been a change in the sample order?
