Yarn softens nicely after washing.
For first washing wash separately using lots of water.
For the Mid gauge machine use our 4/8 or 8/8 cotton yarns.
For the Bulky /Chunky gauge machine use our 8/8 cotton. Start at tension 8-9 and tighten (lower) as necessary to the desired stitch size.
When finding the right tension keep in mind the shrinkage because after washing and drying the knit will tighten and you may end up with a garment that will be too stiff.
Any thickness can be used for weft. Our Slub cotton adds texture and Mixes add an interesting look to your project.
We also carry other weaving yarn - tow linen, rug wool, synthetic rug yarn and blends of wool and other fibres, etc.
