tenugui 02

Hand-woven linen towel, tenugui style

See my previous post on what tenugui means, and my trouble using a single-ply linen warp. Even by liberally applying sizing, the shed problems got so bad that I took a break from weaving this second tenugui-inspired towel until I have a solution or more time and patience.

warp: 20/1 Växbo linen, unbleached
weft: 20/1 Växbo linen, black
sett: 40 epi
warp ends: 600
threading: plain weave variation
(1-2-3-4-5-4-3-2-1-6)
reed: 16 dents (2-3 ends per dent)
weaving width: 15″
status: in progress
