Material: 100% Linen. Textural "Waffle"
Dimensions: 40" x 72"
Care: Machine wash with a small amount of gentle detergent, not Tide. Tumble dry on hot or medium, and remove from the dryer while still very slightly damp so wrinkles do not set. Shake the fabric out flat and smooth it with your hands. If you can dry outside, let fresh air and sun work their magic.
I was initially hesitant in purchasing a linen towel, but I am so pleased with this towel. It is huge, but oh so glamourous! The quality is unbeatable, I cannot stop raving about Rough Linen, they are truly an excellent company! I have purchase many different items from Rough Linen and they are all so beautiful and excellently made.
...but be warned. These give off lint like you wouldn't believe. To combat this while washing, put inside a large mesh bag. I find the Otraki XL mesh bags are perfect. The extra fluff won't come out in the wash and you can shake out the excess and throw it in the trash. The more you wash, the less lint you will see. These bath sheets are incredibly absorbent. I won't use a regular towel anymore. They are the best towels I've ever had. The Orkney towels don't shed. Only the waffle linen. Lint is an excellent indicator of a quality towel and these towels are exceptional. After washing, I simply hang to dry. Best purchase to date.
I have several linen tablecloths and napkins so am not new to laundering linen. These towels produce A LOT of lint. I washed them several times before using and each time had to clear the lint from my laundry room sink’s lint trap between wash and rinse so the water could drain. So much lint would clog a drain. The towels are getting better but they require extra work. They are generously sized, well made and dry fast and I would probably buy another set.
These bath sheets are the best. They are generously sized, soft on the skin, super absorbent, and quick to dry. I intend to replace all the towels in our linen closet with these.
Love RL waffle towels. So. Much. 6" wider and 10" longer than my other bath sheets. I find them a bit difficult to manage, and I'm XXL myself. If you want a supersize towel, grab one of these. They're fabulous.
