The look, feel and drape of the Bambu 12 doubled and sett at 20 epi is just heavenly. Farewell to 24 epi. Do I have the courage to give 18 epi a try? I'll let you know.
Another feature on the plus side is that the fabric wrinkles less and the wrinkles hang out. Here are some stats of interest: Before washing in warm and drying on medium 19"x 84 1/2". After wash and dry, 17 1/4"x 76"
Remember my FORGIVE AND FORGET scarf? Bambu 12 doubled, sett 24 epi with triple strand un-knitted cashmere weft. My mother selected the colors for the words on the right.
My ex-cousin in law selected her favorite 11 colors to weave up the same words to the left. It's amazing how different they look. Plus I decided to change the sett on the second one to 20 epi. I believe the scarf will feel even better, but I will let you know.
Meanwhile I am playing around with some different colors of cashmere for the weft. If you have an opinion, let me know. Pink? Blue?
A couple of you have emailed me to design a warp using your own words. I must say it is working out quite well. I will show you the results once I receive them. I will continue to extend the invitation, especially to those who had questions about the Woven Words concept.
