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!
These towels are made from the bones of thousands of herring. As the herring are processed, the bones are delicately removed with tweezers, laid end-to-end and then pressed by a giant steamroller.
Ha, had ya going! Actually these are brand new 100% cotton, Herringbone towels that are slightly irregular. Meaning they ain't perfect. So if perfection is your thang, these aren't for you!!
They are generous in size and may in fact be too large for cleaning companies but hey, that's for you to decide. If you want a towel for household cleaning or as a dish towel, these are perfect.
They don't take up a lot of space but they have big performance. And they don't smell like fish!
Irregulars at an economical price. Run of the mill herringbone towels are brand new towels that are SLIGHTLY blemished, NOT perfect. They will have either a small stain, crooked hem, misweave, slight color variations or some other minor imperfection. These generous sized 20x26 herringbone kitchen towels are soft, thirsty and flexible cotton towels. Perfect cleaning towels. Very absorbent, extremely low lint and not bulky.
Herringbone weave has a little texture for added cleaning power but still gentle enough to use for most applications. These towels don't take up much space but provide a lot of punch for the money! They are not fancy and not meant to be. Utility is the focus. Durable enough for long term use. *Note - they will come out of the dryer wrinkled.
