Can I use 8/4 cotton and 8/2 cotton together? For example if a pattern calls for 8/2 cotton, and I am low on colors but have the color in 8/4 cotton, can I mix the two together? I would probably use half the epi with the 8/4 cotton? THank you
I'm assuming you are thinking of using the mix in the warp as well? You can mix different weights together and I would double-check Jane's Master Sett Chart to decide on the sett you choose. Does your design use the mix in stripes, so you have blocks of 8/4 in with the 8/2. I know this is not what you want to hear - but I would weave a sample, cut it off and finish it, to see if you are getting the look in the cloth that you were expecting.
