Hand-dyed cotton warps by Kathrin Weber of Blazing Shuttles.
The warps in Kids, Newbies (& Everyone Else) are user friendly for all experience levels. The length is 4.5 yards and the end count varies in the 100 to 200 total threads range. The yarn chosen for these warps is stable, strong and easy to work with. It is a 4/3 cotton: 1,120 yards per pound, sett: 10 epi plain weave, 12 epi twill (suggestions only). This sett will showcase the warp. Multiple warps of the same length can be used together for wider projects.
This yarn would be great for place mats, runners, bags…anything you might want to weaving using a larger yarn.
The warps are wound generously in a longer length than listed. The length indicated here is approx length after the shrinkage from the dye process. Each warp has a white info tag located at the cross. There are loops at the beginning and at the end of the warps. I tie the warp in 5 places: at beginning and ending loops, the cross and two choke ties near each end. If you need more ties to secure it due to your personal setup techniques, add more. Please look over them carefully when you get them. If they will not work for you, please return them in their original condition for a refund or exchange. No refund on shipping costs.
I try to catch knots & other distractions as I wind. Sometimes they get by me, so I encourage you to design your weaving project saving one thread from the warp bundle for a repair thread if need be. This yarn is colorfast in normal use. Do not bleach or use in prolonged sunlight. I boil it and rinse a minimum of 4 or 5 times, but there might still be a little color in your water the first time you wash them. When combining warps that include dark colors and whites, wash in color water with color catcher the first time.
Shipping will be added at check out. An additional 5% of product price will be added to orders sent to countries other than the USA. (Minimum of $5) This can be avoided if you have an address in the US to which your warps can be shipped.
