A quick wash brought the fringe under control. It was quite a relief to me! I really, really love working with this yarn. Malabrigo, when knit, can sometimes pool or flash in ways that aren't so great, but it seems pretty perfect for weaving.
I wove it at 8 epi and ppi, with 72 ends total. It ended up being about 8 inches across and 70.5 inches long.
