I got the warp as a kit from EarthGuild — DragonTale 5/2 rayon and rayon slub, painted “in the warp”. 144 ends, warped at 15epi. The kit came with a cone of black 5/2 black rayon, which would have been enough to do 3 scarves in plainweave. But, I opted to play around 🙂
The kit says that you can weave three 78″ scarves. I wasn’t sure how wasteful I’d been in getting it on the loom, so I opted to weave the scarves to 75″ (on loom), and then had enough left to play with a 4th piece. I’m choosing to think of it as a table centrepiece. The scarves have 5″ twisted fringes, and the centrepiece has a sewn edge and free (trimmed) fringe.
So — on loom, the scarves were 9 2/3″ (144 ends/15 epi) and woven to 75″. They came off the loom at approximately 8 1/2″ x 73″, and finished around 7 1/2″ x 69″.
