Here is perhaps the first inch of warp on the warping mill. Time to add my counting thread.
Running the cotton through my fingers, it’s almost like there is nothing there. This is my introduction to finer threads, and this isn’t as fine as some of the linen and silk samples I’ve seen, not to mention a couple samples I’ve seen that have sewing thread for warp and weft.
Here are a few of the colors of 20/2 cotton I have available for weft. I’m really looking forward to this weaving, following the treadling variations given in the book, and then seeing what I can come up with.
Now, back to my warping mill.
