      I have masses of 36/2 merino in my stock.  Can I use two threads to make it 18/2 (or 36/4 I suppose) and still thread at 15epi?  My other thread is 30/2 silk.

      I’m doing the simple collapse weave scarf.

        I don’t see why you couldn’t use 2 threads as one in the warp, winding them together and putting them through the same heddle.  You might have more problems in the weft, keeping the tension of both warps even as you weave.  Give yourself a bit extra on your warp so that you can weave yourself a sample and practise.  Keep us posted!
