Linen Ms and Os Fabric After Washing
I washed my handwoven linen Ms and Os fabric. Whereas it was almost smooth before, now the texture is puckered. Handling the cloth is even better than seeing it. It feels correct for towelling. I like it considerably better than a plush cotton towel.
Like most people when I think of towels, I think looped surfaces and products that come from machines in distant factories. This weaving project has been a way to dip back into historical methods, use simple equipment, and experience another technical approach, another means to the same end.
