These 8/2 cotton Christmas towels with optional "bling" to use in the weft make a fun project for the holiday season. It's hard to capture the sparkle of the towel woven with the bling thread. Bling is a very thin metallic thread that is not strong enough to stand on it's on. We wound a bobbin of bling and used it in a double bobbin shuttle along with our normal weft thread. You could also use two shuttles, one for the 8/2 cotton and one for the bling, throwing both in the same shed.
