These towels are quick and fun to weave. Cotton Bouclé is wonderfully absorbent and thirsty. Once you have a successful towel you can look at it as a design sketch for a blanket, a placemat, a piece of yardage or a scarf…….the possibilities are endless and on top of all that, tea towels make wonderful gifts.

This was a really simple, tidy project that I was able to complete in only a few days, and the towels are spectacular! None of my other handwoven towels are this absorbent. I picked this colourway because it’s a little outside my usual comfort zone, and I love the end result. Highly reccommend for a beginner weaver or someone who just wants a quick, easy project to make some gifts from.

These towels are just beautiful!!!!! The colors are bright and cheery, just right for these uncertain and eerie times we are all currently living in….
The cotton boucle’ is very easy to weave with and produces a fabric with a soft and highly absorbent hand.
I own a 6 dent reed and slayed 2 threads /dent to reduce friction on the warp as the threads moved through the reed & it worked beautifully!
It was great fun playing with division of space and color with these lovely towels. Who knew plain weave could be SO satisfying?!
They make beautiful gifts too! Highly recommend this kit!
