Fluffy, dimensional, and simply a joy to live with - you’ll feel like a sewing maestro when you pull this cloth out of its first dry cycle.

The fabric arrives 84 inches wide, flat and with a subtle basket-like weave. This weaving technique comes with a delightful surprise once it goes through its first wash and dry.

The threads that are woven to make the outside of the squares - they “lift up”.
The threads that are used to weave the inside of the squares - those “drop-down”.

You get a cloth that looks like squares of a freshly made waffle deliciousness. It is just that yummy!

This cloth is wider than our usual selection at 84" wide.  Once it is washed - the cloth will shrink to get that dimensional waffle surface.
Approximate shrinkage - the width of cloth shrinks 17% (weft of the fabric) and 28% on the length ( warp of the fabric). Shrinkage is based on a warm wash and low-heat dry.

Waffle weave cloth is great for:
- Bath towels
- Robes
- Throws
- Duvet covers
- Pillow shams
- Lounge garments
- Decorative pillows
- Curtains
- Beach towels
- Picnic blankets
- items that need to have dimension and softness

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

Patricia • March 7, 2023

Which color of IL019 do you suggest to best match the waffle color "Sky"? I'm looking for a binding for towels.

Viki • January 27, 2023

Unfortunately we do not have a color in our middle weight IL019 that matches the Sky we do have a couple in our lighter weight IL020 that may work for you as well as bleached or optic depending on the finished look you are wanting for your project.

I've been asked to make a King Duvet Cover out of this, and I will be sewing side panels first and then prewash and dry. I've used it before for towels so I'm familiar with the big shrinkage. My question is: do you think it will hold its shape as a large Duvet cover, (with just an inch or so of typical ease) or become sort of stretched out and saggy? I've noticed that sometimes even as towels it does expand a bit out of the textured state. if it works it will be stunning. this fabric kind of has a mind of its own. :)

Hello, What a wonderful fabric to use for a duvet cover. This fabric does have some stretch in it due to the waffle texture, unless it becomes wet, it will hold its waffle shape. The moisture makes the waffle texture heavy and relaxes the fibers allowing them to stretch out of shape. So this shouldn't happen with a duvet :)

Looking for "Robin egg blue" almost same as sky but in the IL018?

More burrito towels please.

My family loves oversized towels for the bath. So with this fabric I am making towels large enough that one could "wrap themselves up like a burrito". The fabric is 84" selvage to selvage, so that's the length of the new towel. Since most of our family members are under 6 foot tall, I'm making the towels generous enough to cover them well. Ranging from 45"-55". Once they've been washed a few times, they will shrink to a comfortable size and still be very generous. Extra feature: they can do double duty as a toddlers blanket. I've made the standard size towel earlier this year and I love how soft they get, how absorbent they are, and how light weight they are, even oversized. I don't feel like I'm wrapped in a carpet as the terry cloth towel can feel. We hang our towels from hooks to dry off. They dry quickly and if they get too wet, the laundry shares space in the main bathroom. Easy fix.

Love the texture!

Bought two yards to make our grandson a blanket. The color, Sky, is such a beautiful soft color of blue. Love it and the texture! He gets sweaty when he sleeps, and the linen helps keep him cooler. I made our other grandson one out of Mist. Everyone loves them both! Excellent linen. Simply beautiful to touch and look at.

Great gifts

I had tried making my own bath sheet and hand towels about six months ago from this fabric and absolutely LOVE them. Especially for drying my chin length hair. I also appreciate how the towels dry (even in Florida!) after each use. No musty, damp smell. I'm visiting friends next month, so I ordered 4 yards and made two bath sheets, three hand towels and two washcloths. These will be thankyou gifts for wonderful friends. I have told two friends about this fabric and they have both placed orders.

It works

I bought one yard of this fabric to try. I made 4 kitchen towels and I love them! Fabric preformed as described and I now have lovely fluffy and absorbent kitchen towels.

Lots of work but came out nicely

I made 2 bath sheets, 2 bath towels and 2 hand towels and still plenty left for more out of the 6 yards I bought. I used the pattern for making towels from this fabric, and after two washings I found that they were plenty long but too short for tall people like us. I have enough to make at least one deeper bath towel. In both washes they shed an enormous of very short-fibered fluff. After two washes and dryings without using fabric softener (which interferes with absorption) they are quite scratchy to feel. I wrecked my back by bending over the cutting table, the ironing board and the sewing machine to make these, but they are nice. I don't like the rough feel on my face so no washcloths. The pretty light blue goes with my blue and turquoise bath mats. I showed a finished towel to my massage therapist and she fell in love with it. I would recommend adding depth to any towels you make if you are tall, and maybe not so long if you are very slender.

Great fabric for baby gifts

Maryanne • October 9, 2021

I used the waffle weave for this baby bath towel (added organic flannel trim) for my grand baby. Soft, absorbent, cozy. Very happy with it. Will be ordering more for ‘grown-up' bath sheets!
