Hot Yoga Mat in 40-shaft Turned Taquette
My AVL40's first 2 projects were plain weave to make sure the loom was set up properly. Then my son mentioned he was taking hot yoga classes and needed a towel. I created a Turned Taquette (aka Jin) draft following instructions in the Margaret Coe book 2 be Tied or Not 2 be Tied. This book is mostly sold out, but my daughter had obtained it for me from AVL (who still seems to have a few copies).
Warp was 4/2 soft cotton from Yarn Barn of Kansas sett 30 epi in a 10 dent reed. Weft was 16/2 Brassard cotton that wove to almost 20 ppi.
