This DVD is all about how to finish your handwoven cloth and which techniques to use with different fibers. Laura Fry is the demonstrator and narrator and is a real expert on the subject.

The video is 74 minutes long, making it perfect for watching it in one setting. Laura takes her audience through fulling wool, wet finishing cottons, silks and rayons and a variety of compression techniques for linen. She also covers pressing silks and rayons to bring out the fiber’s natural shine. The very last part of the video is how to finish textured fabrics that you may not wish to press so that their bumpy and textured surface is preserved.

My only criticism is that she didn’t mention adding white vinegar to the last rinse of woolens to restore a natural pH to the fibers.
Finishing techniques are a good feather for your weaving cap and this video will certainly get you started in the right direction. ( )

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 this video, 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. 74 minutes
