Here is my take on things.
The idea is for this to be a forum for learning, not only about weaving, but
also about what other people are doing, what materials they are using,
techniques for finishing etc. Some people only weave wool, others cotton or
silk, rarely venturing off in other directions. This exchange gives them
the opportunity to see what others are up to, this being said, you wouldn’t
want all the wool people exchanging and all the silk people exchanging. I’d
assume that your concern is regarding the cost of silk vs. wool. If we were
doing major production runs, and this was supposed to be a barter exchange
then of course items would have to be of equal value. Luckily we’re just
doing this for the love of weaving and the opportunity to see what others
are taking off their looms.
