We're used to tiny zig-zags in twill fabric but in this one, we blew the scale up to just one big zig-zag. Then we added the fun texture of the Cotton Boucle. The warp is 8/2B cotton, sett at 20 epi. The weft is entirely the Cotton Boucle, beaten at a fast 12 ppi with a very easy treadling sequence. Cotton Boucle gives the fabric a springy feel, almost like terry cloth, and disguises less-than-perfect edges. The kit makes four hemmed towels with finished dimensions of 13" x 23".
You will need:
- 15" weaving width
- 8 harnesses
- 10-dent reed
- 300 heddles
- 1 boat shuttle and 2 bobbins
- needle and thread or sewing machine for hemming
