Enchanted Windowpane Towels

September 20, 2019

Combine a 2 ply hemp warp with 5 colors of 10/2 American Maid™ naturally colored cotton to weave 5 lovely fingertip towels (finished size approximately 13” x 24”).  The hemp yarn is manufactured in Romania, and we make the American Maid™ yarns from cotton grown here in the American west and spun in the US.  When you wash the finished towels with baking soda, the color of the naturally colored cotton yarns will deepen.  The green cotton is especially affected by the alkalinity of the wash water. And, the colors will deepen over time.
