Cynthia Newman enjoys finding patterns in architecture and nature and translating them into weavings. This is another of her fabulous creations as seen and described in Handwoven Sept/Oct 2020 page 61. Here is Cynthia’s description of the towels: “The towels have body and feel wiry when you take them off the loom. Once you wash them, they get soft and becomes a light to mid-weight towel. If you press it or line dry it, it gets stiff again if you like a crisp towel. If you put it in the dryer or scrunch it and use it, it softens. A very absorbent towel.”
Yarns included are:
- 2-8 oz cones of 2-ply Lyte Hemp Yarn (Please note, this is a substitute for the 2-ply hemp yarn that Cynthia used. The instructions in Handwoven incorrectly state Tow Hemp Yarn instead of 2-Ply Hemp Yarn.)
- 3 Skeins- 3-Ply Hemp- Deep Sea
- 2 Skeins- 3-Ply Hemp- Sprout (Substitution for Olive that is currently out of stock with our supplier. If you want to substitute another color, please let us know!)
