I was able to comfortably get two towels out of the remains of the purple warp, and still have enough left for tieing onto. I do love this threading, but I'm not sure yet what sort of warp I want to tie on. I know it will be a variegated warp, with random color arranagements, so I am allowing for tieing on in front of the reed and then pulling back through the heddles, not my usual practice. I normally like to beam first, then tie onto the previous warp in back of the loom, behind the heddles. But not this time.
I washed both cut-off towels and hemmed them. Here they are photographed in my bathroom. The light is much warmer, and the color temperature of the magenta towel has altered considerably! Hard to believe these are the same cloth.
The linen has softened up greatly after going through the washer & drier. The towels feel delightful. Both are officially granite weaves, although the one on the left does look almost like a diamond twill. The hems are a nice tight chevron twill.
