Bouclé Tea Towel Kit – Summer Sea

(2 customer reviews)


Level of Difficulty: Beginner
Weave structure: Plain Weave
Material: 5 – 1/2lb cones of thirsty Bouclé Cotton
Each kit makes: 9 Tea Towels

Loom requirements:

  • Shafts: 4
  • Width in Reed: 22″ minimum
  • Reed: 6 or 8 dent
  • You can use a 12 dent reed but occasionally the boucle may be a tad thicker and a 12 dent reed will abrade the Bouclé.  If this happens then switch to your other reed options.

Each kit includes:

  • Weaving instructions (including draft)
  • 1 cone each of Bouclé Cotton in Lilac, Teal, Robin’s Egg, Turquoise & Periwinkle

I love to teach skills that will help weavers develop their own ideas and creative sensibility to become independent designers.  Tea towels are a small and inexpensive way to  experiment without the financial stress of expensive yarns.

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. – Jane

    Gorgeous colors! I love the yarn, too. It has a terrific feel, and high absorbancy. It is nice and strong, and well-behaved, non-tangling yarn, so I was able to warp it easily, and get nice tension. Be sure to follow the recommendation to sley the reed with 2 threads per space, rather than using a higher number reed, so the boucle does not get abraded by the reed. I sleyed a 12-dent, then remembered the instructions, and resleyed in a 6-dent, which worked much better. I was going to sett more densely at 16 & do twill, but decided that plain weave is better with the many colors and added texture of the boucle. Really nice project.

    I forgot to click 5 stars. I love these towels. They are “my” colors. However, I am going to order some in the other colorway, next, because I think those are pretty, also.
