Just thought I'd mention that I have finished and posted the linen towels I had mentioned and shown when in progress a while back. They came out really nice I think.
Oh yes, they are wonderful! Thank you so much Ellen for posting your project!
Thanks, Constance :-)
These are Great! I love the stripe sequence. Hard to believe both warp and weft are in natural. They look like two different colors!
Thanks :-) The stripes occur because linen is like that when not bleached or dyed, that's what I love about it.
wow they look great. I agree it does look like two different colors.
Your towels are lovely!
Would you mind me asking what threads you used?
They look great. I love linen and how it reflects the light.
I used unbleached cotton 16/2 for warp and unbleached linen 16/1 for weft. For the inkle bands I used linen 16/2 "boiled" (that's what it said! I fell for the slightly rugged look of it a while back and bought a cone)
Thanks Ellen.....threads are still a mystery to me so its kind of you to tell.
These are so beautiful! I hope to weave something like that some day!!! Yours are truly inspiring
Just found the picture of your towels and they are lovely. I dug out my STASH of very old linens this morning and am debating what to do. I am reading through some old notebooks from the 50's for inspiration, so we will see what happens.
thanks for the inspiration,
