Ty-Dy is a 100% cotton yarn with a long color repeat. Here we're using it with solid colored 8/4 Carpet Warp, also a cotton. The two are colorful and durable, so these placemats can get real use. They are woven in plain weave using a simple rigid heddle loom. The kit makes four hemmed placemats with finished dimensions of approximately 14" x 17.5". They can be machine washed and dried.
You will need:
- rigid heddle loom with 20" weaving width
- 12- or 12.5-dent rigid heddle
- 2 flat shuttles or a boat shuttle with 2 bobbins
- needle and thread for sewing
We've designed several different colorways for this kit and the sample photographed is the Fruit Salad combination. If you would like one of these colorways, simply order it above using the pull-down menu. If you would like to choose your own colors, please see our Carpet Warp page and Ty-Dye page to see the options. Then return to this page, order the kit, and tell us your two colors in Carpet Warp and one in Ty-Dy in the box above.
