    Finally going back to season 1 mohair. Made 4 scarves and was able to keep it under control with your ideas on warping and bobbin winding.   Very fun. Light, soft, snuggly. CC8D5E35-625A-4246-9328-6430AB7473499363F127-95FF-407E-A980-790EE69F64FEDFA5A288-0561-4C39-8D0D-DF3492E66A53

    Thank you Jane for introducing me to the dummy/pseudo warp.  Brilliant!  I will definitely put this technique to use with the yarns in my stash that are intended for blankets …. 4 of them.  Thanks again.

    Hi Freda,

    I have never had the guts to try it 🙂

    But…that doesn’t mean it isn’t possible.  There are so many things I haven’t tried.

    Why don’t you give it a whirl on a narrow warp say 10” wide.  You’ll know after that and if you do try, please let us know how it went 🙂

    Sorry I can’t be help.

    Cheers,

    jane

    Hi

    I have a 36 inch loom.  Would it be possible to do a plain double weave using mohair?  If I tied on to a dummy warp and lifted the harnesses independently as you described?  Or do you think I am asking for trouble?

    I enjoyed watching this video.  Very informative.

    Thanks

    Freda

    Here is my shetland/mohair blanket, I am very proud to show it. This blanket is for me and so is the scarf done with left over wool from the blanket.FullSizeRender.jpg1FullSizeRender.jpg2FullSizeRender.jpg3

    I did not have any problems. Thank you Jane for your great help with your online episodes.
