Description

This red handwoven chef's towel measures a generous 18" wide by 23" long and is woven using sustainable, U.S.-grown cotton in the warp (lengthwise yarn) and organic cottolin (50% linen, 50% organic cotton) in the weft (crosswise yarn). (This listing is just for *one* towel. Other colors are available!) The design of this towel is based on towels woven by the Shakers at Canterbury Shaker Village in New Hampshire. (You can read more about the Shakers and the Village at http://www.shakers.org/ ).

Reusable chef's towels are a perfect alternative to wasteful paper towels! Use one for a day and toss it in the wash just as you would a regular dishcloth. It's already been washed once, as part of the finishing process, so there is no need to fear washing your handwovens, they're made to be sturdy and long-lasting.

The twill pattern I used to create this towel results in bands of colorful rectangles at each end of the towel. Twill weaves create floats - areas where the weft yarn goes over and under more than one warp yarn at a time. Those floats create a wonderful drape to the fabric, and also make it very absorbent. The linen/cotton blend of yarn in the weft also adds to the towel's absorbency.

I strive to use ecofriendly materials in all of my textiles - this particular towel uses sustainable cotton grown and spun in the United States for the warp. U.S. farmers involved in the Sustainable Cotton Project refrain from using sixteen of the most common pesticides used on conventional cotton, and emphasize water conservation. The weft yarn is a blend of 50% organic cotton and 50% linen, spun and dyed in Canada.

Machine wash warm.
Tumble dry.
