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:

  • 1-400g+ tube 2-ply Hemp Yarn (Please note, this is the 2-ply hemp yarn that Cynthia used.  The instructions in Handwoven incorrectly state Tow Hemp Yarn instead of 2-Ply Hemp Yarn.)

  • 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!)
