Notes

Aiming for finished size 3ft6 x 5ft (42” x 60”) + fringe.

10 dent reed (x2 for double weave to produce double width, folded fabric)
Silk Warp:
60” + 24”(loom waste) + 12”(shrinkage + draw) = 96” warp length
48” wide (42” + estimated shrinkage)
10 ends per inch
Total warp required: 96 x 48 x 10 = 46080” = 1280yds.

Wool Weft: aiming for balanced weave so weft requirement should be slightly less than warp.
