Linen Cloth Fresh off the Loom

My woven linen tea towels in Ms and Os, off the loom and as yet unwashed, uncut, and unhemmed.

The selvedges are straighter and the width of the fabric more consistent than what I've gotten from my rigid heddle loom.  I wove the towels on a Harrisville Designs jack floor loom.  To help with good selvedges, the weaving instructor ran nylon filament along the floating selvedge threads on either side.  The filaments were weighted at the back with fishing weights.
