In the meantime I have measured out the warp for two more scarves, these made of fine worsted wool. This worsted isn't as fine as that in the double weave warp a week ago but still isn't very big. The labels inside the cones say 2/18 and 2/16 although they look finer than that to me. It doesn't matter that much because I have figured out how they need to be sett, measured out the length and number of threads I need and have it ready to beam tomorrow.
There will be some double weave in these, too, but not at all in the same way as the silver gray and light olive. These are a deep blue and a deep blue violet. You'll see!
