Sampling the Kaftan cloth

October 13, 2011

Since I last posted, I did several samples for the kaftan cloth and I think I’ve settled on a sett.  (Hur, hur.  Weaving humor at its finest.)

The winner is at the top in the picture at right.  Its a pretty balanced weave.  30 ends per inch.

From the bottom – the samples:  24 ends per inch, single weft with a solid beat.  In the middle, same epi, but with a doubled weft.  above that back to a single weft with a much softer beat.

The denser sett is the clear winner to me.
