Comments about   " 8/2 Cottolin:

Doesn't break easily but has a little too much stretch. I keep having to tighten the tension without advancing the warp. Not sure how much memory it will have once I take it off the loom. Colors are very nice and I like that their are a lot to chose from.

      Comments about   " 8/2 Cottolin:

      I actually was able to double-double my warp. 10 dent rigid heddle with 4 per hole and slot. Made a nice thick towel. Colors held up after washing. My daughter-in-law loved them.

      I buy this yarn regularly, and enjoy the wide color selection. The linen component makes it a bit more interesting than 100% cotton.

          Great for towels and best price

          from California

          Comments about   " 8/2 Cottolin:

          I love weaving with this yarn for kitchen towels. The combination of linen and the organic non-mercerized cotton adds drape and absorbency. The huge colors combination can let your imagination goes wild. Plus the price for cottlin with the discount is the best deal there is.
