Swedish lace in lime green and navy – these remind me of my aunt’s kitchen in Garden Grove in the 1960s. A fun spring look for the table or kitchen. The runners can be used as a hand or chef towel in the kitchen, or on the table under spring flowers. The smaller size is great as a hand or guest towel, in kitchen or bath. All soft and drapey.
The towels available are numbered on their photos.
Nr 101: Asymmetric blocks of lace.
Nr 102: Stripes of lace with a navy block border.
Nr 103: Smaller hand towel with block lace stripings.
Once you start using handwoven towels you won’t want to use anything else. They are very soft, very absorbent, and little workhorses. You can wash them in the machine, hang them up to dry.
Towels are wee panels of weaving art. Every tea towel I weave is unique and one of a kind. Even coming off a warp of perhaps 8 towels, each individual towel will be different. No twins, just siblings.
Towels cannot be the same length as they are woven individually according to pattern and design, and not according to size.
All of my towels are handwoven on my 8 shaft floor loom, using Brassard cotton from Canada.
Each towel has been pre-washed in the machine, ironed and hand hemmed.
Materials: 100% Brassard cotton in an absorbent Swedish lace twill structure. Machine wash warm, line dry. Hot iron if desired.
I send out a newsletter to tea towel aficionados every time new towels are available (absolutely no pressure to purchase). Please let me know if you would like to be on the list:
Shipping note outside NZ: The price quoted and that you pay will most likely be too high. I will reimburse the overpaid amount as soon as I ship your item. This is because the shipping is calculated for wool shawls and not lighter cotton tea towels.
