I used cotton.  For warp I used a brown and an orange that are a 3/2 ply and the natural white is an 8/2 ply doubled.  For weft I twisted the 8/2 ply with a cotton flake to give it some texture.

These are very nice. What method did you use to weave them?

Thank you.

It is a Huck weave with 24ppi on a four harness Ashford table loom.  I weave and then fold the loom up when not in use and then set it back up to weave again. 

Today, I chose the colors for another set of towels....dark blue, gray and natural.  But I haven't decided on a pattern yet.  I do have a few ideas just need to decide.

I love these towels.  All I weave right now is blankets, but  women in my guild make incredible towels too.  I am inspired to do some for my kitchen...

I am using these towels in my kitchen.  They are thick but not absorbent.  So I will have to get some thinner threads.  I'm guessing at 10/2.
