Notes

Warped full ROYGBIV across. Using full ROYGBIV in weft, though I didn’t quite make it all the way into the red.

10-dent heddle. The Aade Long is slightly thicker than the Kauni, which is interesting because I thought they were more or less the same manufacturer. I think the colors might be deeper in the Aade Long as well. Given the thickness, I think the yardage estimate might be off. My 280g skein yielded exactly 3 times through ROYGBIV. I’m using 2 of those repeats, which leaves me with one left over.
