I would be really interested to see how the Alpaca/silk turned out! I have some beautiful Alpaca/silk that I would also like to try in a denting project, but my first one is on the loom in Cottolin, and it has been fraught with issues (including dropping and tangling my warp while trying to wind it on myself haha) oh well, fingers crossed I can get through the rest of this! At lest it is all a part of the learning experience!
has anyone tried this with alpaca/silk yarn?

Kathleen, thank you! I will take a look at the other side. I am glad you mentioned that about the Swedish drafts as well, I have been looking and some patterns online, so that is excellent info to have!
to be honest, i have just had the treadles tied to one shaft each so if two go up, I am pressing the two treadles needed. I will need to try actually tying up properly😬🙄…..
Jacqueline! Thank you! Classic over-thinking, I am sure, so thank you for taking the time to clear that up.
Silly question, I am sure, but what happens to that header part once the hemstitching goes in after it and your piece is woven and off the loom. Does it stay in as part of the piece or does it get taken out?August 14, 2019 at 11:10 am in reply to: Thoughts on 3.7.2 – Weaving Double Width at the Loom #155958
Never mind! I rewatched and listened properly and I get it! LolAugust 13, 2019 at 10:21 am in reply to: Thoughts on 3.7.2 – Weaving Double Width at the Loom #155957
Sorry, that comment should read “I am not” -not ‘Win’ lol sorryAugust 13, 2019 at 10:19 am in reply to: Thoughts on 3.7.2 – Weaving Double Width at the Loom #155956
Win am not entirely sure why you added the blue thread to the fold edge and removed the warp thread that was there. Also, what to you do with it once the project is finished?(I feel a little dense asking)
Thank you Jacqueline and Ginette, I appreciate your help! I have seen turnbuckles on other looms, maybe I am missing that bit, and that’s perhaps preventing the coil from releasing enough? And Ginette, so true about the spray making it slippery, I’m glad I didn’t go ahead and just try that! I suppose the one quasi-good thing here is that if I have to actually change that piece, I will get a chance to try winding on front to back rather than back to front, as I have already managed to get my warp on there ( it seems to be okay for he winding on part just not the other direction🙄😀), so more practice for me!

Thanks Jane, I thought I’d check. It’s a neat little thing- but I went ahead and followed your method. My chaining needs a boat load of practice but I did manage to get my warp off the mill without it falling all around my feet haha!Thanks for the great program!June 12, 2019 at 5:16 am in reply to: Thoughts on 1.4 – Making a Good Warp – Warping on a Tabletop Mill and Chaining, over and over and over #157748
Good morning, a neighbouring artist gifted me a paddle with two rows of holes, that she said would help with not holding the yarn under too much tension when warping multiple threads. I am really not sure how to use it , I am just starting out and am still watching and gathering information. Any thoughts?
