These colorful, soft, and sturdy towels are made of 100% recycled cotton yarn and densely handwoven on my floor loom in a striped plain weave with twill bands. They are machine washable/dryable and practical as well as beautiful! They would make a lovely housewarming gift or a treat for your own beautiful, natural kitchen!

The yarn is hand-recycled from commercially-made sweaters, washed multiple times, hand woven, machine-hemmed, and (machine) washed again... all by me in my Boston studio!

Approximately 17” x 24.25” hemmed
Machine wash cold with standard detergent, tumble dry medium

Colors shown: Warp of teal, spring green, and pink with weft of medium gray-blue.
This color combination is a LIMITED EDITION - I cannot repeat these colors, so when they're gone, they're gone!
Additional color combinations can be woven upon request; let me know what you're looking for and I can give you an estimate for completion (typically a few weeks).
See my blog post on the process of making them! http://bostonwoolworks.com/2016/09/18/sometimes-the-yarn-knows-best/

Conditions of return
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.


For yarn, hand wash with a no-rinse wool wash such as Eucalan, Soak, or Unicorn Wash.

For hand woven accessories or upcycled neckwarmers made of wool, alpaca, or wool blends, hand wash preferably using a no-rinse wool wash such as Eucalan, Soak, or Unicorn Wash, roll in a towel to squeeze out extra water (don't wring or twist!) and air dry. They can also be washed with Woolite, but it's not quite as gentle so don't use too much. If needed, you can use a steam iron (don't press) or clothes steamer to get out wrinkles.

For upcycled coasters, wash with mild dishwashing liquid (like Dawn), rinse, press out excess water in a towel, and air dry flat.

For handwoven towels, just wash & dry normally in a machine with your regular laundry.
Sizing is indicated on individual items, but let me know if you need something larger or smaller -- I can often custom-make an item for you in your size!
I'm happy to take custom orders, but do require 50% deposit up front and the balance of payment prior to shipping. I also cannot take returns or exchanges on custom orders.
