The perfect use for recycled fabric, don't you think?
Ingrid has been playing with stripes. She found a great little tool online called a random stripe generator and played around with it until she found a pleasing stripe design. Then, using three shades of natural color cotton from Sally Fox she wove towels using the draft which follows. The stripe design is outstanding and well worth the extra trouble in warping.

Dee brought in two very different towels that were woven on the same warp. She used a two block twill which is one of her favorites. The towel on the left was woven with a dark green weft and she treadled 1-4 and 5-8 repeatedly so the blocks are pronounced. Also, by using the dark green weft the green stripes really pop. The towel on the left used a white weft and was treadled from 1-8. See the draft at a previous post. For a touch of contrast, Dee picked some heavier purple cotton for accent stripes.
