Overshot Bath Towel

The first bath towel was cut off the loom to finish it so I could take it for a test drive before weaving more. This baby sucks up water like nobody’s business, so I’m calling it a success. My only concern is the size of some of the floats (up to 13 mm/0.5″) which might snag if gifting them to someone who wears jewellery. I still have enough for another towel on the loom, so I might rethread for one of the tied unit weaves for the second one.

The finished towel measures 1.66 m x 0.70 m (65″ x 27″) and weighs 690 g (1.5 lb).
