I hand weave 60" squares to make triangular shawls. The square is cut into two pieces on the bias and machine hemmed. This helps the top edge to stay in place on your shoulders. For an average size person, the Medium will hang to around your elbow on the sides, and the point will hang to the top of your hip. A Large size triangular shawl is now available! I weave a large rectangle, so there is lots of fabric to wrap up in. The length measurement is from the top middle to the bottom point. See the Scarves page for a small triangle that works as a head or neck scarf.

Care of Fabrics
Most weavings are dry clean only or hand wash. Instructions come with each piece.
Dry Clean Only
I recommend dry cleaning at home using "Dry Cleaner's Secret" (or a similar cleaning sheet that you put in your dryer, available at grocery stores). Be sure to use LOW heat, and a 10 minute cycle. If your garment is still damp, dry for 10 minutes more. Put a fabric softener sheet in, too. Store your garment folded.
Use cold water and a non detergent soap, such as â€œEcover Gentle Washâ€ or â€œIvory Flakesâ€. Agitate gently. Refill sink with cold water to rinse twice. Roll your garment in a towel several times, pressing gently to remove excess water. Lay flat to dry on a towel. You can also use a washing machine set on â€œhand wash cycleâ€. Put your garment in a lingerie bag first. Store your garment folded or on a nonslip hanger. If you need to iron, use very low heat and/or a Teflon shoe on your iron.
