Any job worth doing well deserves great tools. The same is true if your job, or part of it, is in the kitchen. We have great kitchen towels. They are sturdy and beautiful and will last years and years. Many of our towels are made with cottolin, a 60%cotton/40% linen blend that is machine washable and dryable and needs no ironing. Our 100% linen towels should not be run through the dryer. I dry mine by laying them out on the top of the dryer while the rest of the load tumbles. Our 100% cotton towels are easily machine washable and dryable.
