Learning about cloth and thread 19 (Zweigart Davosa)

◆Learning about cloth and thread 19 (Zweigart Davosa)
The last Kensen Congress was a fabric that goes well with the sweet kogin thread and embroidery thread. It seems that the degree to which the weaving thread is pressed and the treatment of the surface of the fabric affect the stitching feel. Today's Zweigart® Davosa is an embroidered fabric from the same German manufacturer as the Coke we investigated in the linen category. The warp threads were different from other kogin cloths, and the stitching was unique.

◆Zweigart® Davosa basic information

(It looks soft.)

◆Impressions of Zweigart® Davosa (according to Satonobo research)
⚪︎The cloth is not thick. (I get the impression that the weaving threads are crushed) ▶️Depending on the threads, there is no sharpness.
⚪︎Weaving threads tend to break ▶️Rather than pricking each stitch one by one, it seems better to lift the warp threads as if flipping them.
⚪︎Easy to sew and handle, except for the fact that the warp threads break easily, and can be used with any thread.

⚪︎The weaving threads move well▶️In addition to regular threading , stretching the cloth vertically will make it look nicer.

Below is a photo taken with a macro lens. I would like you to compare the twisting of the warp threads , but compared to J. Lucien Congress, the warp threads seem to be twisted straight downwards . In addition, I think there is a difference in the way the glue is applied, but I had the impression that the warp threads of Davosa tend to break (unravel) easily. If you pierce by lifting the warp threads by moving the needles, you will not break the warp threads once you get the hang of it, but if you aim for holes in the fabric and pierce each stitch one by one, there will likely be more chances of the warp threads breaking. Therefore, I feel that this is a cloth for experienced users.

⚪︎Other thoughts
It is a fabric that can be embroidered comfortably with almost any thread. Olympas's kogin thread and Matalbon were also compatible as materials . However, since the threads of the cloth move easily and there is no height, the stitches tend to get buried easily, and it seems difficult to keep the kogin thread in a stable position.

Also, Davosa comes in a wide variety of colors, so it may be a blessing in disguise now that there are fewer options for Color Congress. The bottom is linen and cotton fabric from Zweigart. The weaving threads are different in material and appearance, but it was interesting to see that the kogin threads were similar and went well together.

(It's interesting how different materials are used even by the same manufacturer.)

◆About the compatibility of cloth and thread
As I touched on in Understanding Cloth and Thread 3 , sensibilities vary from person to person, and of course, preferences also vary from person to person. Regarding compatibility, I am writing this with the intention of conveying that the stitching comfort varies depending on the combination of cloth and thread. One of the reasons for conducting this survey is that I feel that it is a waste to distance yourself from a cloth or thread based on your first impression. The purpose of the survey is to learn about the positives, not the negatives.

◆Regarding the survey content
This information is for those who enjoy Koginzashi on their own, and was researched by Satonobo using materials he kept at home. Please note that depending on the storage environment, there may be a discrepancy in the count or weight of the fabric you have. Also, unauthorized use of photos is prohibited. I hope you have a fun Kogin time.
