Wind the yarn firmly and evenly without stretching it; don’t let the wraps overlap, and don’t leave spaces. Count the number of wraps in the slot.
Do you ever wonder what sett you should use for a particular yarn? Use these handy little Yarn Gauges to figure it out.
Wrap the yarn in either the 25mm (1″) or 12.5mm (1/2″) slot and count the number of wraps. If you used the 25mm (1″) slot, divide the number by 2 to give you an approximate number of ends/inch for plain weave. If you used the 12.5mm (1/2″) slot, the number of wraps will give you an approximate number of ends per inch for plain weave. Remember, this is a good starting point, but sampling will give you the best information.
