I have a cone of rayon chenille, 1500 ypp, and am considering using it in a narrowish warp (7.5" in the reed) for a scarf. I plan to use a 8/2 cotton variegated weft. I have never used chenille in the warp, only weft and never had any problems. What do I need to know? Keep the tension high to prevent worming? What about sett? I am planning a point twill pattern, and was figuring on a sett of 15-18.
What should I know about rayon chenille as a warp before I start winding it?
Thanks in advance for help with this project.
