On the Weaving Front

The striped warp is in progress:

With this warm, dry weather, I'm having trouble with static charge on the warp and weft yarns. In our climate, static happens frequently with silk, but this is the first time I've had 100% wool behave this way. A slight dampening of the weft yarn (while on the pirn) seems to tame the static for a while, but needs to be refreshed periodically. I'm looking into other cures...
