Courage! The weave in the picture – black ground with  and spectum colored ends - was done in 8/2 unmercerised cotton.
The distortion cannot be shown in the drawdown.
I hope to see the finished cloth soon.

...ahhhh....wet finishing !!

The little sample I tried did not have the V/tulip shape, but you are
correct...wet finishing changes the shapes.

When I get this piece off the loom, will report back.
