The Flour Sack Towel Story
lour sack towels are truly legendary. Many of us still remember the days when families would purchase their household flour in sacks weighing 50 or 100 pounds, place the entire sack into a large container from which flour would be scooped until the sack was empty. The sack would be laundered and bleached, skillfully cut, hemmed and then put to many household uses as these were often the only towels available in the home.
Flour sack towels were commonly used in homes as kitchen towels, cleaning and polishing cloths, diapers and as underclothing. Many were sewn together to make sheets and pillowcases in homes that could not afford regular bedding. Even now you may still see them being used in nurseries.
Since flour sack towels are super soft, completely lint-free, absorb like a paper towel and dry faster than most kitchen towels, they add unsurpassed sparkle to dishes, glassware and windows. They make superb dusting cloths and have many culinary uses. They are used for dehydrating, straining cloths for stocks and sauces, poaching, cheese making, pastry, proofing bread, microwave cooking and they keep salads fresh for hours.
Homemakers have enjoyed using flour sack towels for generations. They are still the best bargain for dishtowels and the get better with every use. All the nubs, imperfections and shadings are characteristics of this fine towel.
They are considered gourmet towels among chef's and food service professionals everywhere. When you see a towel over a chef's shoulder or tucked in an apron; it is almost always a Gourmet Flour Sack Towel.
Since these towels are pre-washed, pre-shrunk and resistant to unraveling, crafters have found them to be wonderful for embroidery, applique, stamping and useful in many other craft projects.
