Comments: Pattern 1 wool was used doubled (thrown 2 shots as one pick), so used nylon embroidery thread as floating selvedges to catch doubled picks.
Pattern 2 boucle did not pucker or draw in.
Weft floats on back not visible until off loom – repaired prior to wet finish (delicate wash cycle 4 min in warm water & spun, air-dried flat).
Finished dimensions: length 68″ (not including 6″ plied fringe); width 39″.
Shrinkage: length 7.5%; width 2.5%
