Soft, absorbent kitchen towel measures 17" x 27", is machine washable and dryer friendly. All my towels have been washed in hot water so the shrinkage happens at my home, not yours. My standard kitchen towels are woven using the same weight yarn for both the warp (the yarn attached to the loom) and the weft (the yarn on the shuttle). Pattern variations are determined by the way I set up the loom and the order in which I raise the warp threads. Color variations occur by changing the color of yarn on my shuttle.
