Gourmet Flour Sack Towel Story
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.
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.

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,
