Shrinkage

« Back to Glossary Index

Shrinkage (S) in both the length and the width of the fabric after finishing the piece.

When your fabric is on the loom it is under tension.  When you remove it from the loom, the fabric draws together causing it to shorten and get narrower.

More shrinkage may occur when you wash your fabric.
