Mended but not washed.
Actually, there was no real mending to be done. Simply trimming off the ends left from changing bobbins. I will trim the fringe after wet finishing.
Width: 7.25” (same as on loom)
Length: 78” (on loom, 88” = approximately 11% loss)

FOURTEEN? Wow, good for you for getting that much extra out of it. Amazing!
The reason I could weave so close is that I have a big loom. It is a Nilus II LeClerc with rear-hinged treadles and from front beam to back beam measures 47”.
The longer warp length also reduces stress on the warp ends. That is why I can weave under high tension with little or no warp breakage.
Small looms are wonderful for little spaces and for travelling. But nothing beats weaving on a larger loom.
