We love the look of checkered towels but often getting that look means lots of weft color changes and tails to weave in. With this set of towels, a color-and-weave effect makes the job easier--there are only a few color changes in the weft! The warp and weft are 6/2 unmercerized cotton at 16 threads per inch. The kit makes up to six towels (two each of three color sequences) measuring approximately 16" x 26". They can be machine washed and dried.
You will need:
- 18" weaving width
- 4 harnesses
- 8-dent reed
- 284 heddles
- boat shuttle and bobbins
We used 6/2 cotton colors Pompeii, Sage, and Natural. If you would like these colors, simply order the kit above. If you would like to choose your own colors, please see our 6/2 cotton page to view the options. Then return to this page, order the kit, and tell us your three color selections in the box above.
Please note: The price of this kit is determined by the weight of the cones used. We've allowed for heavier cones in the price above but most kits will end up costing less.
