Product Details

In a color combo that is evocative of long, hot Summer days, these Santa Fe Summer Towels were specially designed for Valley Yarns by designer Chris Hammel. Valley Yarns 8/2 unmercerized cotton is perfect for thirsty, washable kitchen towels, and what could be better than a bright, cheery towel in lively colors!

This 4-shaft draft is easy to thread and weave and will result in an ample kitchen towel. If you would like to increase the length of your warp, you could try different treadling variations for each subsequent towel and create a set for yourself or gifts for family and friends.
