The test shawl
Out of the washer came a much softer and more drapey piece of fabric. I lay the shawl on a dryer rack in front of the fire and had to fiddle with the placement to keep the fringes from hanging at the kitten's eye level. This morning the shawl was dry. It's decently soft and still has a pleasing amount of drape. The final measurements of this shawl are 78in x 26 in, not including the fringe. It's a nice size. I've tied off the warp at the reed, in knots so the kitten can't undo them. It should be quite long enough to tie on the handspun shawl warp.
