This kitchen super absorbant towel is our largest, measuring 33 inches square, and comes out of the package feeling rather stiff. This is because the linen woven in its ‘loom state,'. It's pretty interesting to see what fabric looks like right off the loom and how it changes when washed. The more it's used, the softer it gets.
The term “confiture” is a French word that means a preserved or candied fruit, or a jam. In order to strain out the seeds and stems from the fruit once mashed, a chef will press a maceration through the Confiture towel, leaving nothing but a smooth base to create jams and jellies.
The generous size of the towel also allows a chef to tuck it into the apron string and still have enough left hanging to dry, wipe, strain or any other use needed. Upon its first washing you will find that it becomes incredibly soft, and with each use it becomes more and more absorbent.
Lead time: 2-3 weeks
