The perfect staple cotton seine twine warp weaving yarn, on 1 lb. tubes. This yarn is made by Brassard in Quebec, Canada.
Comes in 2 sizes:. #12 is 4/12/2, 1,260 yards per lb. approx. 22 wraps per inch. (This is the size we recommend with our Array tapestry yarn, and the size used in Rebecca Mezoff's Introduction to Tapestry Weaving Beginner Bundle.)
I’m just learning tapestry weaving. My first tapestry experiment used a churro wool warp which broke in several places, so I tried the cotton seine twine. This yarn is sturdy and trouble free, and leaves me free to focus on improving my tapestry tecniques.
This tapestry warp is crisp, doesn't kink while warping and is strong even while remaining light and non bulky. The weft packs in very nicely sett at 8 epi. I recommend it highly for tapestry weaving.
A very nice yarn I was glad to find!
Received as part of the tapestry weaving bundle and have already come across 4 knots in the cotton seine.
Twine #12 works great with Array yarn. Easy to use as warp
