I recently forwarded your email about Mohair prices to my daughter-in-law, saying "if a box of mohair arrives on my doorstep, I'll know you'd like me to weave you a mohair blanket for your new house".
And? A lovely box of brushed mohair arrived this week. I'm a fairly new, tho mostly fearless, weaver, so am thinking it'd be much safer for me to use the Harrisville Shetland as warp & the brushed mohair for weft. Then I can weave them 2 coordinating blankets, plus some pillows for their sofas also.
I see the mention of the twill Shetland set at 8 EPI. Just a plain twill?
Also, I am lucky enough to have both a Louet Spring I loom and a Fireside jack loom - any recommendations on which loom might be friendlier with the mohair than the other? In case I decide to be truly fearless and warp with the mohair? Jane weaves both samples on a loom with metal heddles, but doesn't specifically mention that's why she chose those 2 looms for the projects.
Thanks for any advice !
