Mr. Burnham and Mr. Binder were brothers-in-law. The Burnhams had a weaving studio that wove long lengths of yardage in textured yarns for drapery. One of the older members (since passed on) of our weaver's guild started weaving at the Burnham studio. She said that her first warp was 100 yards long! I acturally got to meet Mr. Binder. In 1975 I bought my first loom (A Leclerc) from him. He must have been in his 80s, yet he helped load it into my truck. I also have been lucky enought to have owned two Binder looms and two Burnhams. I just sold my last Burnham.
I see. I have used ruffle yarn to make scarves when knitting. It is a "bulky yarn" , but only becomes ruffled when knit and maybe crocheted (sp?). Are you planning on using it straight from the ball? You could get a mat that way, but you will be sort of horrified how fast it will weave up. I would use cotton for the warp. Good Luck.
