Rus kaftan cloth – wet finished

December 31, 2012

Yesterday, I pulled the Rus kaftan cloth off the loom.  There is something so lovely about an armful of handwoven yardage.

I prepped the cloth for wet finished by pulling out the float warps (I use fishing line), checking for snags, and snipping off loose threads.  I cut a piece off to save for my weaving notebook and tossed the entire lot into the washing machine.   A few of might be horrified to know that I also dry my cloth (on low).  I do this because I want it to felt up.  I use this cloth to  make clothing and I want it to be washable.
