I'm hoping to try this project, but making it look closer to the original inspiration without the element of collapsing during the fulling process. I am hoping to make it in 8/2 cotton, which I have on hand. I recently moved to Portugal, and unfortunately, it's quite a challenge to get weaving yarns here.
My question is, could I use 8/2 cotton for both the ground fabric and the supplementary warp and weft? From the Online Guild Sample and a zoomed in glimpse of the original book page, it seems that the supplementary yarns are thicker. I'm okay if it doesn't look exactly the same as the inspiration, but I wanted to make sure there wouldn't be any structural issues with using 8/2 cotton for both.
Thank you very much for this and for all your wonderful classes. I am learning so much!
