Bath Towel Quest
My quest to make a better bath towel.
I am on a quest to weave a good Bath Towel.
I currently have a sample warp on the loom threaded in Swedish Lace and using different weft threads including: 8/2 cotton, cotton slub, cotton chenille, cotton boucle, for starters.
I will take some of that sample off the loom & wet finish it. After it is dry, I will scrutinize for issues I do not find attractive in a Bath Towel. I will then go back to the loom & see what else I should try with this sample. Perhaps I’ll tighten the sett up more. The sett is how closely you space the warp yarns together, or apart.
I may not find what I’m really after on this, but I will have gained a lot of knowledge from this sample & I will advance my progress for the Perfect Bath Towel.
On another front, I have a lot of Pulled Sari Silk I am working my way through spinning on my e-spinner.
I find I really enjoy spinning the sari silk. When its’ all finished, I just might dye some of it!
