Classic Red Striped Tea Towels

Reminiscent of antique grain sacks used in the 1800s, these stripes never get old. These towels are a treat for your hands and only get better with age. 

Linen is a sustainable fibre that has been used for thousands of years. It is known for its ability to withstand rubbing and repeated washings. With this blend of yarns you will get the durability and strength of linen along with the softness of cotton. These towels will continue to soften with each wash. 

Working with linen can be challenging at first and this pattern is a great way to dip your toes in!
