At least so far. I am employing all tips and hints! So in a way not very good troubleshooting because I don’t really know what is making the difference. But there does seem to be a difference. I have woven about 12 inches without any breaking. The actual selvedge end looks good, not frayed. So while I am not sure what has helped, this is what I am doing: angling the weft more, not as tight a tension, and letting the shuttle do it’s thing. At this rate, the last towel will be perfect!
I have this week off so I am planning a good balance of weaving and household tasks. I should be able to complete the towels and begin another project which I think will be the linen napkins.
