What do you weave with worsted cotton yarn?
FOR ANYONE VISITING FROM THE HOT THREADS ON THE HOME PAGE............
WELCOME! YOU ARE IN THE COTTON YARNS FANATICS GROUP.
I am slightly more knowledgeable since I first joined this group. I didn't know, for example, that ''worsted'' refers to the weight of the cotton yarn rather than how it was spun. I was very confused about the use of the term ''worsted''.
Anyway, I have always used finer yarns-generally 8/2 and have only chosen the heavier stuff for demos. Recently I decided to weave an entire project with heavy yarn and it was so much fun being able to sit down at my loom and turn out a completed project in one day!! I made something very practical for me-a backstrap. Now I have my own hand woven sturdy, firm and very comfortable backstrap and I am planning to make more (to sell, I hope!). In the meantime, I have discovered other nice projects with this heavy yarn-a guitar strap, a belt, and key fobs-I even made a shoulder bag-all flying off the loom in no time!!
So here I am a NEW fan of worsted weight yarns.
