Wet Finishing for Weavers

by Laura Fry

DVD | 74 minutes


Wet-finishing is the process that turns weaving into cloth. Handwoven threads need water and motion to open them up, flatten them out, move them into place, or shrink them into the fabric that you intend them to be.


In this video, professional weaver and teacher Laura Fry shows you how to wet-finish different kinds of fibers and cloth, from the magic that happens in the water through to proper pressing and drying techniques.


You’ll learn:

  • The fulling processes for woolen and worsted cloth
  • How to wet-finish cottons, silks, and rayons
  • Compression techniques to create the smooth, crisp hand of linens
  • How proper pressing brings out the shine of silk
  • Wet-finishing techniques for differential shrinkage and textured fabrics
  • Tips and tricks for fringe and other finishing steps

Through demonstration and myriad samples, Laura shares expertise derived from years of research and experimentation, so you, too, can produce professional-quality finished cloth.


By seeing her fabrics before and after wet finishing, you’ll understand why Laura says, "It isn’t finished until it’s wet-finished."

Excellent Review by Margaret

Laura is an excellent teacher, generously sharing her knowledge and talents. This video is very clear, paced just right. It is especially useful for wools, although there is info for cotton, rayon, and linen, too. Well worth the $$!

Excellent DVA Review by Barbara

I really enjoyed watching the video and found it very informative and interesting. The information is given in a clear and concise format; with great use of samples to show what Laura Fry talking about. Being a visual learner, watching this video really gets the message home to me. The DVD has a great index, so you can go directly to the fiber you are working with at the time you want to "wet finish" your weaving. This DVD will be a valuable resource in any weaver's library. I also feel that for "new" weavers, this information will become clearer as they progress with their weaving skills and introduce new fibers into their work, so as they continue to learn they will find this resource very valuable. Who knew there was so much to learn about wet-finishing. Weaverly yours .........
