Rigid Heddle "Colour and Weave" Towels by Ali Hurlburt Kit
This is the perfect rigid heddle project for weavers starting to use cotton. Cotton can be more challenging to weave with than wool because it has less stretch. This kit is a great way to dip your toes in and get a feel for all the amazing things cotton can do.
These towels get progressively more complex with their colour interactions. We recommend you start with the most simple towel, and progress towards the most challenging one. In the image to the left, the progression is from left to right. The patterns will be displayed in that order in this handout.
Designed and woven by Alison Hurlburt, these towels brighten up any kitchen. Happy weaving!
To use this kit you will need access to a rigid heddle loom (or any loom with two shafts) and a 10 dent reed with a width of at least 15".
