For the past hundred years, flour sack towels have remained the cook's favorite choice for towels. Originally they were salvaged fabric from old flour or grain sacks. After the flour was used, the cotton sack was bleached, washed, and trimmed. Over time it became the flour sack towel we know and love today. Flour sack towels are famous for their absorbency and softness; great for drying dishes. Images of snow-kissed birdhouses modeled after the Mount Vernon Mansion, Greenhouse, and Schoolhouse decorate the Winter Bird House Flour Sack towels. Red cardinals and plump chickadees have found perches on the whimsical birdhouses. The set of two 30" x 30" towels is tied with a red grosgrain ribbon. The birds and birdhouse decoration is approximately 9" x 5". Machine washable. Printed in the USA on 100% fine Egyptian cotton.
