Flour Sack Dish Towels

Does anyone know where I can buy HEAVY flour sack dish towels. My mom loves them and the last ones she found where at Tuesday Morning. They do not always have them available.

You may want to try a restaurant supply store. I haven't seen them there, but that wasn't what I was looking for. I love to cruise the aisles of that place - there are so many interesting things and some you don't need to by a dozen or more. I've found the less heavy ones at Walmart and use them a lot.

Have you tried Williams-Sonoma? I seem to recall seeing them in their catalogue.

I know they're on the pricey side, but, boy, the quality of some of their stuff is really excellent and just maybe worth spending a bit more. I have potholders, aprons, and dishtowels from them which just do NOT want to wear out!

Man do I love Flour Sack Towels!

I like the thinner ones though, as I sometimes use them to squeeze water out of things, and depend on their ability to pass water.

They are my kitchen standard!

You can find them through some sewing supply sites online. They are the plain ones that if you want you can decorate. Let me know if anyone wants the links to a few of these sites.

I thought I was sort of weird for preferring WS potholders. But they really do last -- and wash well.
