This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave these Heirloom Tea Towels that were designed by Ruth Morrison for Handwoven's Design Collection #18: Treasury of Towels, pages 30–31.

Bamboo is three times more absorbent than cotton so it is only natural to weave these gorgeous tea towels for your guests' enjoyment! 

Weave structure: huck lace with borders embellished with ladder and zigzag hemstitching and an unusual offset Danish Medallion motif.
