I have been contacted to make several yards of 100% linen tape 1.5 inches wide. The customer wants it to be coarse rather than fine so I thought to use sport wieght linen yarn on my inkle loom. I've done 1.5 to 3 inch wide tape using perle cotton, does the idea of using sport weight seem like a good one? What about sock weight yarn? I tried to do a project with worsted wool once and it went terribly wrong <g>.
I'm just getting used to this community and sent my question initially as a reply not as a question ... let's try again.
