Woven Shibori Towels

Onto another warp of Woven Shibori. This time I am working on weaving some towels with 8/2 cotton warp and weft. The resist thread is 5/2 cotton.

I have gotten my resist pattern form "The Bulletin". This is put out by the Guild of Canadian Weavers. I am a member of this group. They have a real - life - touch - feel - sample in each newsletter!

The Summer 2012 issue had the sample:  Diagonal Bronson Lace 8 S Sample by the Monashee Weavers. I did a little playing around with the treadling, but used their threading. Lots of different weave structures work well with woven shibori. Just make sure your floats are long enough to give you a nice area to resist the dye.

I will dye these towels this summer.
