Sunset Towels

Sunset Towels

The Sunset Towels have been a customer favorite since they were first published in the Jan/Feb 2019 Issue of Handwoven Magazine. Re-introduced in December 2023, woven with Beam 8/2 Organic Cotton in the warp and weft, we were tempted to rename them the Sunny Disposition Towels because they exude pure joy on the loom and in your kitchen.

About Sarah Resnick

Sarah Resnick is the founder of Gist Yarn and Fiber, and the host of the Weave podcast. She learned how to weave in Toronto in 2009, and was hauling a Craigslist loom up to her apartment two months later...she's never looked back since! Other parts of her fiber journey included selling handwoven baby wraps, helping to launch a sewing factory in Fall River, Massachusetts, and creating Jewish ritual textiles for people celebrating life cycle events. The thread that winds through everything she does is a passion for building systems that directly support farmers, manufacturers, and artists to bring value and beauty into the world.
