Level of Difficulty: Beginner

Weave structure: Plainweave

Material: Boucle Cotton

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.
