Getting shirty...

A great article about shirtings.

I would have explained satin before jacquard and dobby. Both create patterns by making shaped areas of twill or satin on a broadcloth or end-on-end ground.

Still, a very good article, and the explanation of voile is the best articulated I've seen. A similar article on suitings would be really valuable.

Since I have the setts for several different satin weaves, I occasionally find myself with an urge to weave wool satin. It just seems so wrong.

You're right.

That is pretty wrong.

It might be even more wrong than weaving wool voile.

I would have to add about satin that it is a "random" weave. By that I mean that a "standard" satin sett mixes up where it catches the floats as much as it can in order to not have a visible pattern. I can quote the setts and treadle patterns for you, if you'd like.
