Happiness & Fortitude Towel

Seaside Towels

September 20, 2019

2 New Colorways!  We just added Happiness & Fortitude that use the 2021 Pantone colors of 2021 and Forest & Snow that remind us of the view out our windows!  We have used the wonderful color palette of the Maurice Brassard unmercerized cotton yarns to dream up the colorways for these soft towels.

RIGID HEDDLE KIT:  Included with the kit are instructions to make two plaid towels using a rigid heddle loom:  one woven in plain weave, and one woven in a soft pickup pattern.  The finished sizes of the towels are approximately 12.5” x 20”.

4 SHAFT KIT:  Enough yarn to make 4 delightful plaid towels: two woven in plain weave, and two woven in rosepath pattern.  Includes 4 shaft instructions.  The finished sizes of the towels are approximately 18” x 26”.

We have limited quantities of Driftwood and Seashore kits as we are discontinuing these two colorways.  The remaining kits of those 2 colorways are available at a reduced price.

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.

Project Description:

  • 5 fingertip towels
  • 20 EPI, 20 PPI
  • 15” wide in the reed
  • Warp length 6 yards
