Easy Weaving These new designer-towels look complex but are achievable even for beginning weavers. They're a great way to explore color in a parallel threading design inspired by Marian Stubenitsky's book Weaving with Echo and Iris. Four treadling variations result in four unique towels.
Kit Saves Time & Money
We save you time and expense by winding just the right amount of all eight colors of our 100% cotton 8/2 Aurora Earth yarn needed to create these gorgeous color combinations.
A four-color warp plus four different weft colors are used to weave four generously sized (18" x 26½") towels. You'll be amazed to discover how the treadling and color variations impact the woven fabric!
Learn A New Weave Structure
The structure for the towels is an echo (also known as parallel) threading on four shafts and provides an excellent introduction to the concept of woven iridescence. .
