This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave these Napkins with Patterned Tracking that were designed by Margaret Gaynes for Long Thread Media.

Weave these napkins that look complex to but are actually very easy to weave.

Tracking is a change in a fabric that occurs during washing, causing random diagonal ridges to rise on the surface of the cloth producing the effect of a very complex twill stucture, when in fact, the fabric is woven in plain weave.

We consider tracking a magical gift from the weaving gods, so give these napkins a try!

These generous sized napkins can be used as bread basket liners or lap tablecloths for casual dining. A great way to go paper-free in your home!
