Weaving Project – Twill Tabby Towels: aa032503

These colourful 8 shaft teatowels make a nice spring combo for your kitchen. The towels are woven with 6/3 white cotton and bordered with a 1/2″ edge of natural unbleached cotton. The weft uses a single ply dyed hemp yarn. You may substitute with a No. 10 or No. 12 single ply linen.

The towels are woven to a length of 26″ each. Weave the background twill for 16 picks, then weave the pattern tabby blocks for 12 picks. Add some variety to the towels by using different coloured weft yarns, in solids or stripes.

Finishing:

Remove the finished warp from the loom. Machine wash, dry and iron. Cut the towels to length. Using Twill tape, fold and sew a loop for hanging at the end of the towel and machine stitch the hems.
