This kit is a great way to weave with linen and try out Huck. The weaving went more smoothly than I thought – I have a counterbalance loom and worry about a good shed with unusual tie ups. I had no problem with the huck structure, and now have four lovely linen towels. I liked the pattern and structure so much I wove additional towels in cotton and cottolin, and adapted the huck threading to a towel with a 3 panel grid. This kit was a great starting point.
