So: demo-day is over. Just off the loom:
Went home, twisted fringes, put in washing machine (in a mesh bag). Had problems decide which washing cycle to use: I wanted it to shringk/felt more than my ordinary differential shrinkage shawls, but not too much. Decided to do the same cycle, but suspecting I would have to do more.
This is what came out of the mesh bag:
Hmmm – it would (obviously) not need another cycle...
A deep breath and some coffee later, it looked more promising. This doesn’t really do it justice:
With a slightly tighter sett, it may even be for a small production "line"?
A better detail picture:
It shrunk about 30% in length and width - but it felted a lot more than (for instance) the "summer skies" in the last post.
