I'd like to do the overshot projects but need to substitute the silk and zephyr. I can do 12 g Bambu instead of the silk, but don't know what to sub for the zephyr. Wool doesn't work in my family due to allergies, or in Southern California because no one wants wool here. Would another color of Bambu work or are you counting on fulling the wool in the finishing?
Maybe I should just make samplers in all cotton to learn overshot. I have some 16/2 cottons that could work for weft if fulling isn't required.
So I would substitute Bambu 12 for the 30/2 silk and Bambu 7 for the Zephyr and then make whatever adjustments necessary to the sett?
(Sorry, I haven't watched the videos yet, I've fallen behind. I'm trying to make up a big order for a couple of my projects and for the guild projects so that I can save on the shipping, and my brain wants to explode.)
Lol, my brain wants to explode everyday 🤣 I think you will totally be okay with the 7 gauge bambu as a substitute for the zephyr without changing the sett.
