This is a fun project that won't take too much brain power because the threading and treadling sequences are very easy to remember. We chose 8/2 Cottolin for this one because we love the absorbency of the fiber and the weight makes a nice placemat at 24 epi and ppi. Pick three colors that you love and have fun weaving! The kit makes four hemmed towels with finished dimensions of 15.5" x 17". They can be machine washed and dried.
You will need:
- 20" weaving width
- 8 harnesses
- 12-dent reed
- 480 heddles
- 1 boat shuttle
- 3 bobbins
- needle and thread for hemming
We used 8/2 Cottolin colors 1430 Dark Orange, 4616 Peacock, and 5153 Mauve.
