Glimakra loom and first cotton weave

I think this loom is so elegant. There is a simplicity to it that is just right for me.

The yarn is from Lunatic Fringe Yarns and is color grown cotton. Color grown means that the cotton hasn't been dyed, it grows that color naturally. I find that fascinating.

This will either be four longish tea towels or two tea towels and a runner. I'm not sure yet.
