Years ago, Ruth Lantz a guild member, was at a dinner engagement and her best friend was wearing
one of "It's A Ruth" handwoven business suit prototypes. During the course of dinner, worms sprang out
all over the upper portion of her latest design. She ended up having to hand reweave a different yarn into
everywhere the worms crawled out. It made for levity for our meeting but cost her a lot of headache
and profit. To this day I remember her mixed warps -- at least 30 colors and different yarns to create
marvelous fabrics. Each garment was woven with a different color and each looked totally appropriate
to the design. You had to look hard to realize they were all from the same warp. Never had a problem
since with silk or cotton chenille, but acrylic and rayon needs sett very close and pack the hell out of it.
