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 flat 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)

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).

Towels are great, warm white not optic
Reviewer: Elizabeth

I bought 1 yard as a test and then ended up buying a bolt. Made towels for myself and my parents, very happy with the outcome. Pros: * Towels are soft and absorbent. * Amazing as hair towels, light weight and hair comes out nicely dry. Cons: * The chemical smell before washing. It hits you when you open the package and doesn't go away while you work on it. I'm a fabric pre-washer, but strongly recommend to cut and sew before washing, or plan to bind instead of hem. * The color is not actual optic white. It is creamy. Other thoughts: * The fabric shrinkage was less than I expected. Below is my experience. * Cut on the pattern and use it to measure the hems. Each little block is about 1/4". The fabric is not square on the bolt, so cut carefully or expect to trim later. Sample 1 yard, no hem, straight into wash (LxW) Start = 36 x 83 After first wash, gentle and cold, med hot dry = 27 x 72 After second wash, normal and warm, med hot dry = 23 x 70 (ended up making hair towels out of this, corners had to be tacked by hand because they were so thick) Towels from bolt, with 3/4" hem (LxW) Washed on hot, med hot dry, 2 times before measuring. 45 x 66 => 28 x 52 54 x 83 => 40 x 70 20 x 16 => 12 x 12 50 x 23 => 28 x 16

Waffle linen fabric for bath towels
Reviewer: Leah

I love this fabric! I've made four sets of towels for friends and family. I used the pattern provided but for a cleaner look, I changed out the corners for mitered ones.
