Friday Favorite: Floursack Towels

May 4th, 2012

Up until last year I always used normal terry kitchen towels. When we stopped at Seed Savers Heritage Farm last August I purchased a few of their vegetable flour sack towels. When I got home and started using them I quickly fell in love and all my other kitchen towels started collected dust in the drawer.

So what do I love about them? their large size, how quickly they absorb water, how quickly they dry and with these how beautiful they are! They are available at Seed Savers Exchange if you’re interested.

I’m going to have to purchase a few more of these this summer because I occasionally run out. My other kitchen towels will be demoted to rag towels when that happens.

Do you have a preference when it comes to towels that you use in the kitchen?
