Triple Stripe & Spot Lace Linen Towel Set

Designed and woven by Malynda Allen

Woven on the Flip Loom

I recently discovered that I really like linen towels in my kitchen. Linen is crisp, cool, and absorbent, and it dries quickly. It is wonderful for drying dishes and hands, and it softens the more you use and wash it. Sometimes stiff linen warp can be a challenge on a rigid heddle loom, so I chose to eliminate the problem by using a cotton warp and a linen weft. A simple pick-up pattern adds interest and repeats throughout this set of towels. With two colors of linen weft, I could play around with color combinations.
