I am attempting some upholstery fabric for the first time and decided on Brassard 8/2 cottolin for the warp and Harrisville Shetland for the weft. The structure is “Waldenweave” from Bertha Gray Hayes collection of miniature overshot…. I am developing a “thing” for overshot and really like all aspects of it.
I did some sampling and decided that 20 EPI (2 per dent in a ten dent read) gave me the right pics per inch with a medium hard beat on my Louet Spring to produce a squared pattern repeat. After a gentle fulling, the color option samples came out very nice- encouragement!
I’m now threading a 28″ warp for the full width fabric. Wish me luck.
We decided to go with the Harrisville “Tundra” light green with the olive weft. Luckily Jane has a cone of Tundra in stock… it’s vanished from other supplier sites.
