I remember well the first item I ever wove in wool. I loved the way it looked on the loom and the way it looked when I unrolled it from the cloth beam. The thought of what might happen to it if I washed it was frightening. I took it to my guild, where they all told me that it would improve with wet finishing. That was enough peer pressure that, as soon as I got home, I put it in the bathtub (it was a coverlet) and crossed my fingers. They were right. The threads softened and slightly fuzzed without destroying the pattern I loved. Ever since, I’ve been experimenting with degrees of finishing. I wish I’d had this eBook from Day One. -Madelyn van der Hoogt

Outstanding resource for anyone who weaves with wool Review by Linda

Great explanations with pictures of wet finishes on different weave structures. Looking forward to weaving some of the projects. Another home run from Handwoven.
