What does it mean to sley 2, sley 1 in your reed. Thank you for the explanation.
Also Jeannette, If you are using a floating selvedge, be sure to put it into it's own dent at each edge.
First you pull two threads through a single dent (opening), then one thread through the next dent, then repeat. So you sley 2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1, over and over.
