So, I finished weaving the loopy scarf (see previous post). Here it is off the loom ….
And then washed it by hand.
Washed it again in the washing machine to full/felt it and here it is at this point…
Not sure if I will wash it further – it is not felted, but the spaces between the warp threads have almost disappeared.
One of my hopes was to show off the handspun yarn, I think it accomplished that. I also wanted to play with wool and felting – hmmm….might have to go a step further.
Width in reed: 6.5 inches
Width after weaving: 6 inches (plus loops!)
Length off the loom: 80 inches (plus fringe)
Current Width: 4.5 inches Length: 74 inches (plus fringe)
