In the meantime, I am playing with more samples. I have some Jaggerspun Maineline 2/20 on my rigid heddle loom to test out sett. It might be a bit loose at 25, but we will see how it washes up. I also plan to test it at 20. Then next will be Jaggerspun Superfine 2/18 if I can find the cone of yarn I ordered. The samples of the EPiC wool are finished and I will photograph all samples when I have wet-finished everything.
I also opted to toss some of the fine wool singles onto my small Cricket loom to test it out (and to try to weave a Dublin scarf). I really thought I would have more issues with it than I am having (especially given that the loom is not equipped for weaving with two heddles). But it seems to be working reasonably well for what it is. I look forward to seeing how this project progresses.
The second photo shows weaving with two heddles set for tabby. I just have them rubber banded together at the top and raise or lower both at once.
Not sure how this project on the Cricket will work out the further into it I get (or how the fabric will end up wet finishing). But so far it is looking like it might be usable and I am learning more about ways to manage that particular loom in the process.
