Weave Love, Give Love!
Posted by Jessica Ybarra on
Love – still the best gift to give!
When it comes down to it, all any of us really want is LOVE! Love is free for us to give — with all our hearts and soul! So why not weave a bunch of it into these luscious all-cotton towels and gift to those special people in your life!
We’ve made it easy!
Jodi Ybarra, our in-house rigid heddle designer has lovingly created our newest collection of Love Of My Heart Kitchen Towels for you to do just that! Jodi says these towels are so fun to weave. Although their designs look complicated, they are quick and easy and a set of two towels can easily be completed in a weekend, or with just 30 minutes/day in less than a week.
LOVE and quality go hand-in-hand. You’re going to love working with our quality 100% unmercerized Aurora Earth 8/2 and Cotton Tail 8/4 cotton yarns. They are strong and durable and work up beautifully in both warp and weft. Washed properly they are colorfast and mature beautifully with use. You’ll LOVE the feel of the fabric they create.
Easy enough for beginners!
Whether you are new to rigid heddle weaving or have been loving it for years, you’ll find that Jodi’s step-by-step instructions for warping, weaving and finishing along with helpful hints and tips will take the guesswork out of weaving your set of colorful towels.
Our goal is to help make your weaving a success. Jodi Ybarra is here to help you every step of the way! She is available to answer any of your questions through her email, firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include a daytime phone so if it’s a question that needs answering in person, she can call you!
Easy Weaving on Cricket 15″ Loom!
What we love most about these Love of My Heart Kitchen Towels is that they can easily be woven on any 15″ rigid heddle loom, the Schacht Cricket loom in particular.
Helpful Hints & Tips
Check out her many Hints & Tips videos on Cotton Clouds’ Youtube Channel . She’ll show you everything from how to read the Warp Color OrderChart to maintaining perfect tension, tips on color changing, creating a pick-up technique, to finishing and hemming your towels. Although these videos were made for our very popular rigid heddle kit-club, SuperSoftCotton™ Towels, you can easily apply the hints and tips to these towels. A possible short video on these Love of My Heart Kitchen Towels might be coming soon!
We love the deep, rich colors of the Hot Checks Kitchen Towels with just a pop of white. They’re woven using all Cotton Tail 8/4, which makes them super-easy to warp and weave with just one single yarn end in each hole and slot. The color changes that create this check design are easy to accomplish and your weaving will go quick and easy. These are so thick and yummy! We love them!
Jodi says she had so much fun weaving up the Cool Stripes Kitchen Towels with her easy textured pick-up technique that gives these towels super-absorbency! An easy-to-follow Warp Color sequence of Aurora Earth 8/2 in six loving colors add eye-moving interest . A single strand of white Cotton Tail 8/4 keeps the action going as you quickly weave up these towels. Jodi’s favorite!
