1. To calculate the amount of shrinkage to expect for a woven piece, weave a
sample at least 12" square. Measure the length and width on the loom while still under tension.
Enter those values, in inches, in the "Woven Length" and "Woven Width" boxes. Then,
finish your sample using the method you plan to use on your final piece. Measure the length and
width of after finishing. Enter those values in the remaining boxes and click the "Calculate"
buttons. Your shrinkage percentage will be calculated, and also prefilled into the Dimensions Calculator
below.
