Weave these towels on any rigid heddle (2-shaft) loom with an easy pick up stick method.
The warp consists of Aurora Earth 8/2 100% unmercerized cotton in a dark tone, a light tone and natural for great color effect.
This pick up technique makes a fabric that looks complex to weave but is actually very easy. You get into the rhythm of the waffle weave sequence quickly and will weave a beautiful towel set in just a few hours.
