This padded yoga mat is not the sticky kind, but it works well for doing restorative poses and savasana relaxation.
We use our 100% unmercerized cotton, 8/2 Aurora Earth yarns for this unique doubleweave yoga mat, tote bag and pillow.
It's fun learning this new Lucas series of color sequencing that gives these beautiful graded stripes moving through purple-blue-green-yellow-orange-red color range with natural accent on both edges.
This project is featured in Handwoven March/April 2010 Magazine. You will need the instructions from this issue to complete this project. This magazine is now available only as a digital download. Be sure to order this if you don't already have a copy.
You'll need 5 yds (8 oz) polyester quilt batting 48" wide or a cotton, cotton blend of your choice (not included in kit).
Weave on any 4-shaft, 30" plus loom with a 10 dent reed (4/dent for double weave).
Kit makes one yoga mat 24 1/2" x 70"; one yoga pillow 10 3/4" x 24 1/2"; one tote 13" x 24 1/2" with inkle strap.
This project is restorative in more ways than one! You get the fun of weaving and stuffing the padding into double weave tubes and the pleasure of using the mat and pillow when done! Enjoy!
