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 Wet-Finishing for Weavers, 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. By seeing fabrics before and after wet finishing, you'll understand why Laura says, "It isn't finished until it's wet-finished."
