      Hi Cathy,

      No, I haven’t dressed my loom for this yet — my daughter made a request for something and I’m working on that first. And I’ve ordered an 8-dent reed, so if it ever gets here I’ll be using the suggested size.

      Sorry I couldn’t help!

        Thanks Ginette.

        I’ve also been told that the Harrisville Shetland is sticky so maybe would be better to not have 3 ends in a dent? I think I’ll take a length of the yarn and run it back and forth through the 12-dent reed to see how much abrasion there is.

        Guess I’ll just have to do some sampling 🙂

          Hi all,

          My question is regarding reed choice. I don’t have an 8-dent reed but have a 6 and a 12.  Would it be better to use the 6 (sley 2-3-3) or the 12 (sley 1-1-2) to achieve my 16 epi? Or does it matter? I’m using the kit, so Harrisville Shetland.

          Thanks! — sue b

            I’m weaving the scarf from Episode 7, using bambu weft at 18 ppi and am wondering how one should wet-finish it? Would washing in the machine damage the bambu? Or a hot soapy soak to get the cotton to shrink and settle?  Hard press like tencel?

            Thanks in advance!    😉

                  Hi all, I’m Sue (breadwoman on Ravelry), pretty much a beginning weaver, being primarily a spinner.  I started with a rigid heddle loom last year and graduated to an 8-shaft Mighty Wolf a couple of months ago. I’m still on my first post-sampling project and look forward to learning along with the rest of you!
