Size shown is after laundering. All sizes are approximate as shrinkage is rarely uniform (right guys?).
Cotton shrinks. It's a fact of life.
Shrinkage varies. It depends on your laundering equipment and methods. The higher the heat in the wash/dry process, the more severe the shrinkage.
Just like teenagers, cotton shrinkage can't be uniformly controlled. After laundering, you might find it shrinks more on one side than another. We call that character.
The good news? They get bigger and better with age. New products are stiffer and less absorbent than the same product after having been laundered many times. Some of the shrinkage might go away too. Bonus!
If you try and get someone to do the dishes around here, they'll tell you they need to get the sack. Flour Sack Towels that is! (See what I did there?)
Who can blame them - they're extremely soft, low lint, quick-drying and might even wrap around your waist for a little cuddle.
Or as an apron. That works too.

FYI - Flour sack towels are a very unique towels. This particular flour sack HAS a wide variation in size and irregularities which are a natural characteristic of this wonderful product! You can expect size variations from 30" x 30" to 32" x 36". Size variations are created by the laundering & bleaching process.Uses:
