Half Persian 5 in 1 Unbalanced 4:1
The original Half Persian 5 in 1 is a naturally unbalanced weave and is given the (3:2, or 2:3) offset (depending on handedness). This version is the 4:1 (up through 4, down through 1) version which is so unbalanced that it requires a very large AR.
The sample uses .062" (~16SWG/1.6mm) stainless steel wrapped on a .708" (18mm) mandrel. (.833" ID, AR of 13.4). Even at this AR it doesn't completely behave, although it does offer flexibility both ways.
I see this as a gateway weave. Due to its nature, it is not completely stable, however, it is an important step toward Full Persian 10 in 1 Unbalanced, and Half Persian 5 Unbalanced 4:1 Sheet 10 in 1, both of which are stable, even at a lower AR than the one used for this sample.
