I had a question about substituting 20/2 linen for 16/2 linen. Sandra said 'yes just change the sett'-- but I am not clear on what she means. If I use 20/2 linen do I change the sett from 16 EPI to 20 EPI and use a 10 dent reed sleyed 2 per dent?
Thank you for your help.
Sorry, for any confusion Lee. What I meant was do a ruler wrap, including your weft, to find out what sett you want for the yarn you have chosen to use. I just looked up 20/2 linen on the web (not a yarn we use) and it’s 3,000 yards a lb. Our 16/2 linen is 2700 yards per lb.- therefore slightly heavier. Jane shows us how to work out our setts in Season 1: Episode 4. If you are using yarns that aren’t on our Master Sett Chart - then using 20/2 linen gives you a chance to practice ;-)
