Unwashed and Washed Sample

Sample of Swedish Lace:

As you can see from these two photos the Swedish lace did shrink to show off the lace areas. The unwashed linen is rather stiff while the washed and ironed one is soft and has some drape to it. Width on loom was 14 1/2 inches.

Unwashed width off loom is now 13 3/4 inches. This photo is showing the color of the actual warp better than the bottom photo.

Washed and ironed width is now 12 3/4 inches. The lace areas show up very well now.
