Sampling for flooring weight woven cloth

Warp and Weft in 2-ply Icelandic wool and Black Welsh Mountain.

Warp and Weft in 2-ply Icelandic wool and Black Welsh Mountain.

Warp number 2 in this project.  Using multiple strands as one end (warp thread) and as one pick (weft pass).

I used 3 strands instead of one thicker one, all going through one heddle and in one dent in the reed. Although the white yarn appeared quite fluffy, it wove without problem to my relief. For a single cloth (as opposed to double-cloth) it was interesting to observe the different feel of the various weave structures; the hopsack giving a thicker and more robust cloth.
