Cocktail napkins at their best when you are handing round oysters, or other tiny delicious things, way better than paper (for one thing they don't disintegrate when damp).
This is just about the only thing I iron — because they look so crisp and seemly when I do.
Material: 100% Linen. Smooth in natural or white, frayed edge and pintuck
Set of 12
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.
Rough Linen’s Smooth Linen Cocktail Napkins make the perfect host or hostess gift.
Great! These linen cocktail napkins are a great alternative to paper cockail napkins and in a pinch can substitute for cocktail plates for canapés. Thin and washable (iron when wet for best results or smooth flat and air dry). I like these more than larger while linen cocktail napkins I had been using. They are thin (one layer of fabric, not folded in quarters like a traditional napkin, so they are not going to fully protect any surface below from moisture), but lovely and the natural color keeps them looking good and stain-free (unlike white linen).
I use like a coaster with glasses that will form condensation. Nice to hand off and looks great.
I bought both colors and love them!
