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
