Weaver Notes

I used cotton (unmercerized) for both warp and weft. Length shrinkage was close to 20% while width was a more expected 10%. I added a band woven using a tabby treadling at one end of the towel. An easy weave and the design is pleasantly different on each side. My color choice was natural for the warp and a brownish eggplant for the weft. Once woven, the brownish eggplant appears as a dark brown. Not a cheerful color but it won’t show stains easily!
