Finishing and Blocking

You may wish to block your shawl, you can do that as follows:

Make sure all ends are woven in using a tapestry needle or method of choice.

Gently block by filling a sink or water basin with lukewarm water, and add a small amount of rinse less wool wash.

Place the items in the water and gently massage out any air bubbles.

Drain water, gently squeezing out any excess water from the item, then roll in a towel, and stomp on the towel roll to remove any more excess water.

Lay the item out on a towel to approx. finished wingspan measurements and allow to dry completely.
