Set of 2 Coordinating Hand-dyed Cotton Warps by Kathrin Weber of Blazing Shuttles. These warps consist of 200 threads each for a total of 400 threads.
These are part of the “Sister Warp” series. Sister Warps are warps in coordinating colors that I dye with the plan that they will be used together in a single project. The 2 warps consist of 200 threads each – total 400 threads. Of course, even though I dyed them to coordinate in a single project, how you actually choose to use them is your choice! Feel free to use them as a unit or independently.
This yarn is a 4 ply cotton: 2,200 yards per pound which is approximately the size of a 5/2. Sett 15 – 20. (suggestions only.) Keep in mind I usually sett my warps a bit tighter than standard to showcase the hand-dyed warp colors. Multiple warps of the same length can be used together for wider projects.
This yarn is super soft and strong. It will make beautiful linens or baby blankets, lap throws, scarves, clothing, anything that you want to touch. It was grown and spun in the USA. Because these warps are hand-dyed, no two warps will be identical.
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.
