These towels are super absorbent and fast dry. They are also very squishy! A complete delight to use, but I must admit, I was very nervous while making them.
The warp has a random-ish pattern to it. I wound four colours at once, then threaded them onto the loom as they came to me. It looked good in the sample facecloths I wove, but I was nervous to see how it would look on a larger scale.
The neat thing about winding four yarns at once on a warp instead of the usual one at a time is that it goes about 20 times faster. One doesn't have to stop and count so often, and it's just way more fun this way. So when I had finished my blue warp, I was in the zone. I quickly wound a second warp but this time, I used up little bits and bobs of yarn I had left over for an even more random effect.
I used 8/2 cotton set at 20epi. I choose this draft because it has a 1/3 twill - one up, three down - which is very quick and easy on a direct tie up jack loom like mine. As you can see, the fabric is a different colour on the other side. I think, if it wasn't for such a colourful warp, the 'back side' would be the main side as it has a much stronger waffle look than the 'front'.
On the whole, very happy.
