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!
Crafty people really like these Flour Sack towels. They make a great blank canvas for embroidery. You'll find they are heavy weight towels and aren't bright white.
Of course if you aren't crafty, you can just use them as the near perfect dish towel. Low lint and durable.
If you happen to be tipping a few back while you embroider these towels, you can use the same towel to clean up any spills.
Hey, we are always thinking about you.

Texture and thickness very similar to the old style 100% cotton restaurant napkins. Extremely absorbent. Great dish towels, extremely low lint and durable. Heavy weight tea towels are back strong in popularity. Perfect consistency towels to show off your unique talents.
FYI - Heavy weight flour sack towels are 100% cotton. Sizing is added to the cotton during the manufacturing process and stiffens the fiber which helps when hemming towels. The sizing washes out and the towels become softer. Our towels are received slightly oversized from India to compensate for the initial shrinkage during the laundering and bleaching process. The laundering and bleaching process is very specific to ensure size consistency, however there will be slight variation from towel to towel.
