You guys, I need some help. I am taking a dyeing class in a couple of weeks in holland Michigan at the Michigan league of hand weavers annual workshop. I will dyeing at least 6 warps so I'm trying to wind them off this weekend. It should be a great class and I'm so excited! Anyway, my first project is going to be two pillows for our black couch. I have a cone from henrys attic of piggy which is a boucle type cotton at 600 yards per pound. I wrapped a ruler and got 12 tight wraps per inch. Which I know you usually half to say 6 epi. But this is going to be for a pillow and since I'm dyeing the warp I will want my weave to be warp faced. So I want it dense and hardwearing...I do have teenagers who think pillows are to be used no matter how decrotive they may look. Forgive the spelling there..
And I'm not sure what my weft should be.....can you do a cotton warp and a wool weft?
So I guess I have two questions....sett and weft suggestions for a relatively non fussy upholstery for a pillow. Any suggestions? Thanks
