Camp & Cottage Towels – New Kit Color!

Halcyon Yarn Camp & Cottage Towels are fun to weave, economical, and long lasting. Kits make four finished cotton towels, so make some for yourself, or to give as gifts. See all the details below…

The classic ticking stripe evokes memories of lake side cookouts, good friends and happy times. The Camp & Cottage Towels include instructions for four versions from one warp – or follow the basic instructions and create your own pattern of stripes. These towels feature a 100% cotton warp and weft, made from Homestead 8/2 Cotton Yarn so they’re super-absorbent, machine wash and dry, and they look great even after years of use.

Anyone can weave this classic pattern! The draft is written for a 4 shaft loom, and has been updated to include instructions for weaving the towels on a rigid heddle loom. This is a terrific kit for anyone learning to weave, as well as a fun project for more experienced weavers who want to make something easy, fun and functional. Plenty of yarn is included with the kit so you can experiment without worrying about running out of materials. Camp & Cottage Towel Kits include the pattern as well as yarn for four finished towels, approx. 19” x 28” after washing. Plain weave, straight draw.

Choose a kit or pick from over 60 colors in Homestead 8/2 Cotton Yarn (made in the USA). Classic towels in a classic yarn, from a company that’s been working for weavers since 1971. You can’t go wrong!
