This is an amazing project.  I love the colors and the design.  I see the mold inspiration, and I love the fuzzness.  What was the technique that you used to add the fuzz?  Do you have any "in progress" photos of that part?

I really hope that you are published, and I will be eagerly opening my handwoven magazine to look for this project.

This looks GREAT!

It is 52 inches long and 6 inches wide the fringe adds about 7 inches in width and the fringe is 5 inches long at the longest point.  These measurements are after washing.

I will have to take some photos with it on tonight.

The fringey furry part is made using a technique called knotted pile. The book "woven treasures" shows how to same with Peter Collingwood's rug technique books witch you can get for free off line. I learned it in a weaving class that I took years ago.  The photos do not show the process of knotting. It is hard to explain with words try looking for a video on you tube or a tutorial online.

Thanks!  My mom taught me to weave, so I think of it as kind of a loop with the end sticking out between to warps. 
but I did find this GREAT resource online http://www.cs.arizona.edu/patterns/weaving/books.html#C 

thank you very much for suggesting the Peter Collingwood book, and for the in progress photos.  I am guessing here:  you pulled out the green weft and finished the ends by weaving the fringe back into the piece?
