Can I put two threads of mohair in a #6 dent? Can I make a double weave with Mohair? My loom is just 45 inches wide.
I have never done this myself but I do know many weavers who have and they have put 2 ends in a 6 dent reed. If you are at all nervous I would try a small sample :)
Thanks Jane.BTW- You are the perfect teacher for my visual style of learning.I love your business and refer you to all new weavers here in North Seattle.
What really kinda busted my britches. Was in the mohair recipe my reed is exactly 45 wide and a #6.I have a counter marche from Norway. I just can’t warp my blanket all the way to the ends like that.So Im taking the obvious route…Im making at a little more narrow. I was thinking of doing a double weave with the mohair but I think it would be a huge PIA. So I stopped thinking of that idea and went back to a narrower warp. I LOVE my. Harrisville double width shawl.So beautiful after fulling.Love,Ann
Hi Ann, I’m so glad you are enjoying the videos, that makes me very happy. I have woven many blankets with a Shetland warp and a mohair weft….if you enjoyed the double weave with Harrisville you could use that for your warp and mohair for the weft and get a lovely wide blanket. Thanks so much for your support :)
