These 100% linen tea towels are the perfect canvas for your next embroidery project, or a thoughtful gift just the way they are! Linen is sturdy and machine-washable; a linen towel lasts many years longer than cotton, making this a practical and timeless choice for any kitchen.
Made by Helen Round Designs in Cornwall, UK, these beautiful towels are lovingly made by hand and ready for you to gift or enjoy.
Approximately 27 x 18 inches / 70 x 46 cm

- Prewash your towel before stitching. The linen will soften considerably in this first wash (and more and more with use).
- Our favorite wool threads are the perfect pairing for this linen fabric! They are colorfast, but we recommend hand washing your finished towels to protect your embroidery, with something like Soak.
- Wool threads shown in photo 3 are colorways #386 and 562; wool threads used for embroidery in photo 4 are colorways #211, 285 and 445.
