Linen tea towels

I am new to the delights of linen tea towels! For a long time I lived in shared households and with hand me down tea towels. When I began buying my own I worked out very quickly I wanted to avoid any polyester in them, and looked for pure cotton.
I knew linen teatowles were cosidered high quality, but I didn't know why ~  I had gone off linen after being exasperated by such easily crumpled clothes.

Recently I have had one friend educating me about patience with linen clothing (which means finding second hand linen clothes is a boon!) and another enlightening me on the quality of linen tea towels. She has just been given a glorious pile of beautiful linen teatowels that are really works of art. And so she kindly passed on to me a couple of the lovely teatowels she had made, as well as a large brocade one.

Now I understand! SO absorbent! Resistant to dirt and stains! (And better for the environment).
I love them!
Never too old to learn!whistle

Blimey!!!
I've never seen so much excitement over a tea towel in my life................mind you, I wouldn't know where to buy one that wasn't cotton.
I suppose we can get them.................but I've never seen them.
Towels, tea towels, anything to dry anything.................it's cotton all the way here!
