Keep It Simple Towels
This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave these Keep It Simple Towels that were designed by Mary Ann Geers for Long Thread Media.
These lovely tea towels are very easy to weave. Great for your own kitchen or to have on hand for much appreciated gifts.
The threading is straight-forward, and the weaving is quick with one shuttle.
To keep your interest while weaving you will have white for your warp and two different weft colors. This will give you a set of four towels that are similar but still a little different.
