Weaving with Linen Project Kit
Linen, for weavers, has a mystique unlike that of any other yarn. Weavers are afraid to use it, yet we admire any fabric woven in it and associate it with the finest threads and most complex structures—especially lace weaves and damasks. The best project to practice weaving with linen is probably towels because they are small and quick. Cotton often is the preffered yarn when weaving towels, but we would like to challenge you to diversify your weaving yarn portfolio and try weaving with linen. While many of the projects featured are woven in cotton, we encourage you to subsitute those yarns with linen of your choice so you can experience the joys of this wonderful fiber.
Not only will you gain great knowledge about linen with this collection, but you will also get 42 weaving projects to experiment with! Inside this kit you will find:

Linen: From Flax Seed to Woven Cloth
by Linda Heinrich
Learn exactly how linen comes to be in this saga from seed to woven fabric. In this book, you will not only get a historical view of the practical use of this fabric, but you will also learn about flax cultivation, processing and spinning, dyeing, and weaving and finishing linen cloth. This book offers over 200 color photos and 150 black and white photos and drawings that bring the whole story of this remarkable fiber to life!
Best of Handwoven: Weaving with Linen—Yarn Series
Linen fabrics have a hand that defies description: a firm gleaming surface with an unbelievable drape. If you have been afraid to try weaving with linen, this eBook can be your personal guide to success. If you have already discovered linen’s joys, the projects included here (more than half on only four shafts) will inspire you to weave many more. Very experienced linen weavers share in these pages their tips and tricks for successful warping and weaving with linen.
Best of Handwoven: Top Ten Dish Towels on Four Shafts
The projects in this eBook all come from later years of Handwoven, starting in 2002. Dish towels are a joy to weave—and they are very quick! They require only washing and hemming, they make wonderful gifts, and they are the perfect item to enter in a guild sale. Towels also lend well to experimentation with weave structures. Since they are quick to weave (and extremely useful to have around the house), warping for several and trying each in a different technique is a great way to learn and practice before moving to larger or more complicated pieces.
Best of Handwoven: Top Ten Towels on Four Shafts
This towel collection features projects from the earlier years of Handwoven magazine and are now hard to come by (especially if your are new to Handwoven). It includes ten projects and covers the gamut of color and structure on four shafts. You'll find overshot, summer and winter, huck, basketweave, and several twills, in addition to plain weave. Towel types range from colorful and casual to dressy and elegant. Any errors in the original projects have been corrected, and yarns that are no longer available have been replaced with good substitutes.
Best of Handwoven: Top Ten Towels on Eight Shafts
Not all of the towels require eight shafts; some use five or six. All of them, however, show the advantages in design and use of weave structure provided by more than four shafts. You can weave pictures or you can use an eight-shaft twill threading for eight completely different-looking twill towels. There are towels in traditional M's and O's, towels in variations of lace, towels in undulating twill. You'll love this resource to turn to whenever you need a quick handwoven gift or a lovely weaving experience.
