Hand-dyed Tencel warps by Kathrin Weber of Blazing Shuttles.
The warp is a wonderfully strong smooth Tencel 5/2. 5/2 Tencel has 2,100 yards per pound and the standard recommended sett is 16 epi for plain weave. 20 epi for twill. To showcase the dye work in the warp, you might choose to sett it a little closer. The warps are wound generously in a longer length than listed. The warp you get will probably be a little longer length than the description indicated. We wind them a little longer to account for shrinkage, but this yarn as very little shrinkage. These warps are hand-dyed. No two warps will be identical.
Each warp has a white info tag located at the cross. There are loops at the beginning and at the end of the warps. I tie the warp in 6 places: at beginning and ending loops, a thread by thread cross at one end, a counting cross of either 10 or 20 at the other end, and two choke ties near each end. If you need more ties to secure it due to your personal setup techniques, add more. Please look over them carefully when you get them. If they will not work for you, please return them in their original condition for a refund or exchange. No refund on shipping costs.
We try to catch knots & other distractions as we wind. Sometimes they get by us, so I encourage you to design your weaving project saving one thread from the warp bundle for a repair thread if need be.This yarn is colorfast in normal use. Do not bleach or use in prolonged sunlight. I boil it and rinse a minimum of 4 or 5 times, but there might still be a little color in your water the first time you wash them. When combining warps that include dark colors and whites, wash in color water with color catcher the first time.
Shipping will be added at check out. An additional 5% of product price will be added to orders sent to countries other than the USA. (Minimum of $5) This can be avoided if you have an address in the US to which your warps can be shipped.
