Difference between a single thread and a double thread Wayuu bag

Hi! You might have noticed most shops have both single and double thread Wayuu bags on offer, but what are the differences?

Double thread Wayuu bags:

1) Less time to make

2) Considered the popular choice because of its more economical prices

3) Larger stitch, less detailed patterns

4) Thick and heavier

5) The straps are usually a little stretchy and do stretch over time

Single thread Wayuu bags:

1) Takes twice as much time to make

2) Considered a premium choice

3) Intricate, detailed patterns

4) Thin and light

5) The straps are non stretchable

P.S. If you do find the straps of your 2T Wayuu bags stretch a little too much for your liking after a long time, they can be easily unstitched and stitched to the length that you prefer!

 

你好!相信大家都會留意到市面上的Wayuu袋一般區分為單股(Single thread)和雙股(Double thread這兩種編織法,但其實它們的分別在那裏?

 

雙股Wayuu袋:

1) 製作時間比編織單股袋更快更短

2) 價廉物美

3) 紗線較粗,圖案不夠細緻

4) 袋身較重,質地更厚更挺身

5) 袋帶大多數有彈性,但袋帶彈性會隨時間而流失,變得鬆弛,長度亦因此而改變

 

單股Wayuu袋:

1) 製作時間是編織雙股袋的一倍

2) 價錢較貴,被視為較優質之選

3) 紗線較幼,圖案更為細緻

4) 袋身又薄又輕便

5) 袋帶完全沒有彈性

P.S. 如果你覺得你的雙股編織Wayuu袋的袋帶,因為經過長時間使用而變長,你可以自行拆線,然後再用勾針把它縫上,將它修改到你心目中的長度,方法簡單容易。
