    The 'Holes' in Linen

    Discussion in 'Research' started by Kerilum, Jan 16, 2017.

    In linen or most cloths, there's little 'holes' between each thread, where winds and liquids can seep through. What are these 'holes' called?

    Ok. Now I am going to ask what is the significance of the tiny caps between the threading in linen?

    I will meet you about halfway and post a link of sewing terminology. If you find it in there, let me know
    what they call it. Deal? :)

    Wow, a far out thread of which I know something. I want to indulge.

    They're called the 'weave-voids'.

    They belong to a wider, limelight shy, family of many other 'voids' that operate, not on, but under the fringes:

    That space twixt inner naval and t-shirt/blouse, between cornflakes in the cereal box, along the long tunnels of nothing in the ribs of corrugated cardboard, and of course their mother entity; that hollow, that ball of nothing, that inhabits the small sphere between your least fave politician's ears.

    BUT, what are they called when the void is filled with a microscopic camera that was inserted by Nazi spies covertly operating in a dildo factory?

    I don't know, but I'll pre-order your book if it answers the question.

    I would say weave. When Rachael used an Afghan to cover herself when Chandler walked in, he interrupted to to tell her it was an very open weave and that he could still.

    We jest :-D, but Clive Barker has made his home in these voids for many of his books. Between the weft and warp, hidden worlds may lie. :ohno:

    No, but seriously, it's a common thing in his books that worlds of wonder (or horror) lie within common or unassuming objects. In the case of Weave World, it's a carpet.

    Clive also brought us the unmistakable:

    Oh, Hellraiser writer-man. Brill!

    That's the sort of book I'd buy by cover alone. Might have to as, if I use Amazon's look inside, ...may well be just staring into the void. :p
