          What setting do you have the iron set at?

              It is on hot 🙂
              I don’t weave with synthetic yarns so hot always works.

              Love the scarf, thanks for the instructions.
              It has been a great 1st
              year.

                You mention a pattern for one of these scarfs. Are there patterns available here that I haven’t found? I would love one for the silk and linen scarf. Thanks for the videos!

                    Hi Lana,
                    There is a pdf up on the episode of that scarf…..it is called The Collapse Scarf (2nd pdf). If you look in the top left hand corner of the screen right by our logo you will see
                    two icons. One is an eye….that tells you what you have seen in that episode and the icon right underneath takes you to the pdfs. Hope this helps.
                    Cheers, Jane……..p.s. The pattern if written for silk and Zephyr (50% tussah silk/50% merino). We just substituted 2/40 linen instead of silk on one half of the scarf, but only in the weft.

                    Thank you for clarifying. I did look for the PDF, in a few of the episodes, but I did not go back to fringe twisting.

                      What is the name of the iron? I didn’t quite get what Jane’s was saying. Never seen such a fancy iron!

                          It’s a Rowenta. I just realized, if we can’t understand a word that Jane is saying – you can turn on the Closed Caption and read the word! Jane has just had all of Season 1 done on Closed Caption so every episode will have that option.

                          I wonder what air fluffing on cool in the dryer for a few minutes would do to the collapse weave silk scarves. I’m thinking it might soften the fabric and leave it a bit loftier. I have never woven collapse weave (or silk for that matter) but after seeing those scarves, I will definitely be trying.

                          Thanks again for a fantastic and inspiring lesson.

                              Hi Brenda, this June episode is all about collapse weave!

                              Pressing rather than ironing is more important in quilting and garment sewing since ironing can stretch any bias edges.
                              Pressing clothes are often used to protect the fabric from excess heat or dirt on the iron.  Also to help preserve texture on what is being pressed.

                                Thank you Jane for all the information. I learnt so much and I am now more confident to try weaving on my own.

                                  Thank you Jane and your crew for all of the wonderful information. Thanks for covering so many different details. I have learned so much. Just wanted to say that for pressing the wool stripes in the collapse weave a seam roll that is used in garment making might work well for that allowing the collapse part to get out the way while the flat section is ironed.

                                    I’m not seeing this “eye icon”  – is it maybe only on phones? I’m using a PC.    Also what is the model of the Rowenta?  I’m not finding it.  I have a less expensive iron (not Rowenta)  and just looked and it has very few steam vents which may be why it doesn’t press well and it is light…and I thought it was just me!

                                    thanks as always Jane.

                                        Hi Trish, the eye icon was when we had the website for the online guild set up differently. Now, to download the pdfs, it’ll be just below the video. Not sure on the model of the Rowenta but do hear they are great irons.

                                        I get some really gross wrinkles in my cotton boucle pieces, usually near the selvedges. I can’t ever seem to get them out when I iron or steam them. Do you have any tips for that?    Should I spray with water to let the fabric ‘relax’ ?

                                        You can see it here on the right:

                                            Have you washed and dried them in your washer and dryer, Kimberly?
