I have a 9 yard warp on my loom for towels and cut off the first one to wash and determine shrinkage before continuing on with the others. I also had some sogginess at the ends and planned to retie on anyway.
I warped with 2 strands of 8/2 cotton in the color 'Naturel' for most of the warp.
After washing, much to my dismay (as these towels were to be gifts) I found loads of tracking (recently a topic of Tom Knisely's column in Handwoven).
Any thoughts about whether using the two strands was a factor here? The yarn was from the same manufacturer and I warped with the thread coming off the cones horizontally.
I'm planning to change my treadling to a twill and hope that disguises the problem.
Any thoughts appreciated!
Good morning, Kemurt - I've never thought of tracking as a problem - just a new design element on my cloth ;-) Tracking happens, from what I understand, because of the way that cone of yarn was spun - nothing to do with the way you wove it. I've seen amazing tracking - if you are on Ravelry and check out the Weave with Jane Stafford group - you can see a stunning piece of cloth with a surprise tracking layer on the cloth recently posted on the WIPs & FOs thread. I'd consider it a bonus and keep weaving - that yarn is already in your warp.
