Beautiful antique French old creamy linen/hemp household towels used throughout the 18th and 19th centuries in France. Soft but durable, these towels will last forever with the proper care. All of these towels need washing as these are right out of a cupboard from an old French farmhouse. We aquired a large lot from one dealer. I purchased these for our stitchers as I think they are perfect for any needlwork projects as well as being used as towels.
To clean hemp, linen or nettle wash in your washing machine with soap and warm water. Once removed from washing machine, snap out any wrinkles. Hang to dry and then press with a hot iron. The more these fibers are washed, the softer they become.
