Dazzling Cotton Towels!
Who thought cotton yarns could be so bold! With the magic touch of designer Sarah Jackson's hand, our 8/2 Aurora Earth unmercerized cotton yarn radiates with basic primaries that pop right off these generous-sized (18" x 26") kitchen towels. Kit makes 6 towels.
A Study in Color
Those six colors are combined 15 different ways in the warp with six of the combinations rotating as weft.
Sarah Jackson comments, "I loved weaving the towels and discovering how the interaction of the color combinations in both warp and weft impacted the cloth. I think you'll love weaving them, too!"
