Product Details

Weaving multiples of the same draft can get pretty boring, but putting on a long warp when weaving towels, for instance, makes more sense than putting on a short warp.  The idea behind Valley Yarns Spring Towels was a challenge to weave several different towels on the same threading and mostly on the same treadling but changing the tie-up to achieve a variety of patterns with a minimum of effort. The result is a 4-in-1 draft of 4 different towels on one warp. It keeps it interesting and is easy to manage, even for newer weavers. Use our colorway or choose your own colors to match your kitchen. Challenge yourself to some weaving fun! 

Equipment: 8-shaft loom, minimum weaving width 24”, 10-dent reed, 1 shuttle, 1 bobbin. A temple is helpful with twills, but not essential.
