Cambridge Teatowel – update

Quick Update:New teatowel I’ve now woven 3 towels on a first warp, and have put on a second warp and am ploughing through another 6. Each one is different 🙂
My edges haven’t been brilliant and none of my temples will fit this width, so I’m using a suggestion from a couple of weaving friends, of clips and weights. It seems to be helping as the width has recovered a little.

sample with heavy linen yarnAs an interesting aside, I wove off the last bit of the first warp with a very heavy coarse tow linen thread. The fabric is very interesting and looks like it might make a good furnishing fabric, though I’ll need something a little less scratchy than the tow yarn!
