Warping and Weaving Towels with 8/2 Aurora Earth
I love working with 8/2 Aurora Earth cotton on my rigid heddle loom!
The best way to work with the 8/2 is to double the warp threads in a 10 dent reed having 20 epi in your warp.
I also like to double the weft threads to make nice thick absorbent towels.
Sometimes the threads will stick together behind the heddle but I simply insert a pick up stick behind the heddle and separate them, then continue on with weaving.
You can separate the yarns with the pick up stick each time you move the warp forward.

They are easy and fun!
