Should I use ½ and ⅝ hole pitch material?
There are several types of hole-punched thonet material. At Naturtrend we basically stock two halves. Their pattern can have a similar repetition of ½ and ⅝ col, you can read this from the product code. e.g. TH-½-60-S
Which one do you need? If you buy new, whichever you prefer. If you are replacing an existing one, it is important that it is the same, you can calculate it as follows:
Calculate the hole pitch.
1col - 2.54 cm
How many holes are there in 1 inch? 2.1 cm - 1 inch 1 inch 1.5 cm - 4 holes in 5.5 cm. Measure from the rightmost yarn to the rightmost yarn of the 4th hole.
5.5 cm / 2.54 cm = 2.16 cm
2.16 / 4 (holes) = ½
So the thonet webbing is ½.
How many holes are there in 1 inch? 6.9 cm has 4 holes. Measure from the rightmost yarn to the rightmost yarn of the 4th hole.
6.9 cm / 2.54 cm = 2.71 cm
2,71 / 4 = 0,677
So the thonet webbing is ⅝.
The fabric should be measured both horizontally and vertically, as the fabric may be slightly distorted.
And with old hand-stitched chairs, it is easy to get neither of the hole pitches exactly right.
