Slide 6

Setts for Some Common Yarn Styles

Slide 7

Determining Sett (Ends per Inch or epi) Wind the twist around a ruler for one inch Firm, even, no extend Fill the space with no cover Count for wraps/inch = W (twist yarn breadth) Weft yarn distance across = F Calculate same as above Eileen Hallman

Slide 8

Determining Sett (Ends per Inch or epi) proceeded with Number of strings in one rehash of the weave structure = T (plain weave (1,2)= 2; twill weave (1,2,3,4)= 4 Number of convergences in one rehash of the weave structure = I (plain weave = 2; twill weave = 2) Sett = (T x W x F)/( T x F) + (I x W)) Eileen Hallman

Slide 9

Formula for Sett S = (T x W)/(T + I) S = sett T= number of closures in one rehash of the threading W = yarn width or wraps/inch I = number of collaborations that the weft has with the yarn in one rehash Manual of Swedish Weaving

Determining Yardage Count framework for yardage Number of yards in a pound of a "standard" yarn Cotton and spun silk: 840 Linen, hemp, jute, ramie: 300 Worsted fleece: 560 Woolen fleece: 256 Yardage of a single= tally x the standard Yardage of an utilized yarn= yardage of single/# of handles Weaver\'s Companion , pg. 30

Slide 16

Sampling Purpose: check sett, ppi, structure, shrinkage, blemishes in the yarn, impacts of shading and surface, completing systems, and texture hand. Make every example no less than 6-10" wide and long. Test twist ought to be sufficiently long to re-sley and re-tie (e.g., 2 yards) Record length and width On the linger Off the linger Finished
