HANDSPUN SCARF IS WOVEN AND I HAVE A QUESTION

Posted by Peg in South Carolina
Final hemstitching Here is the scarf, still on the loom.  On the loom, it is 88” long and the width is 7.25 inches (the width at the reed is 8.0 inches.

I have done the hemstitching…..after re-checking the directions! I find it amazing how easy it is to hemstitch this fabric as compared to hemstitching my 60/2 silk pieces.  And how much better the hemstitching looks here.

And now I have a question.
Last Bit of weavable warpI wonder how long I will be able to make the end-of-the warp sample I would like to have for testing wet-finishing?

Peg, you should be able to get a few inches of sample on there, maybe 4" worth? At this point, just go slowly and you'll have enough for a decent sample yuo should be able to make something eith after washing.

I find that each warp is different as to how far you can go up to the heddles with your warp. May be your handspun warp will let you weave on a bit more? I hope you will be able to get a good sample out of it!

Yeah, the scarf is done! I think you should weave far enough for sampling......just throw that shuttle!

Thank you Dave, Margreet, and Delighted Hands. The shuttle has been thrown and a new post should be published sometime today.
