Want to make Hand towels that are both functional and beautiful?  This is it!  8 colors from around our Tubular Spectrum Mercerized cotton plus enough white yarn to make either 2 or 4 beautiful and functional basket weave dishtowels.  Now available in Tints or Brights!

Finished towels are approximately 12.5” x 27”.  The 2-towel variations only have instructions for weaving on the rigid heddle looms.  The 4-towel variations have instructions for both rigid heddle and 4-shaft looms.  We include several treadling variations for the 4-shaft looms to mix things up!  Choose Brights or Tints yarns.

You will be able to turn eight brilliant colors from the Tubular Spectrum™ plus bleached white into these beautiful towels using either your Rigid Heddle loom or your 4-shaft loom.  All the yarn you will need for 4 towels is included in the kit.

Yarn is all 5/2 mercerized cotton dyed with fiber reactive dyes to minimize fading and bleeding of the colors.  You will not have to worry about the red yarns bleeding into the white.

The towels are approximately 12.5” x 27” when finished.   Listen to the Loon! Difficulty level is Beginner to Intermediate (One fish). This is a Rigid Heddle or 4-shaft loom kit.
