This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave these Fancy Dish Towels that were designed by Anne Merrow for Easy Weaving with Little Looms Fall 2022, pages 44 and 57-58.

Fika is the Swedish tradition of a sociable coffee break, and we all need more of those!  

Just like coffee breaks, we can never have enough kitchen towels.  Not just for ourselves, but for a perfect hostess gift.  You will be the talk of the party when you show up with a basket of these handwoven towels and a bag of their favorite coffee. 

It's also the perfect cheery towel to have on hand, whether you're having brunch with friends or a donut from the shop down the road.  

We also love the special touch of a woven hanging tab that can be woven on an inkle loom and then sewn into place while hemming.
