I am weaving towels.
As far as I read - cotton, linen, bamboo are supposed to be absorbent - being plants fibers. I don't know how true that is. I don't have 16/2 or 4 cotton at the moment...
From my experience, it is stronger than 16/2 cotton. I usually use 16/2 bamboo the same as 16/2 cotton. same sett. But I'm a bit new to overshot so (the 2nd project) so I wanted a starting point.
I thought of 20 epi (a bit less than the recommended PW sett). In worse case scenario the towel will be firm but that's not too bad for towels. and then open it a bit.
Any way.. I'll start there and see how it goes.
Thank you for your advices and replies, Cheryl, I really appreciate it :-)
