Finishing: In loom your scarf should measure approximately 21" W x 73" L (with room for 6" of fringe on both ends). Wet finish in cold water with a mild detergent, roll up in a towel to absorb excess water and hang to dry. Trim fringe to 6" on each side. 




About Mariah Gaar 

"I have a background in Studio Art -- specifically in fibers and graphic design. In my own work, I aim to create access to heirloom quality textiles. I explore various natural fibers and color combinations to make something worthy of holding on to. I focus on the juxtaposition between art and function - and try to find the balance between the two. Weaving is my passion and I enjoy continuing to learn more about this medium every day."
