IS010 Waffle Sky Softened - 54% Linen / 46% Cotton Fabric - Medium (6.2 oz/yd2), Width 84"
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 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).

How much fabric do I need to make a set of bath towels?
Please follow this link to our blog blog.fabrics-store.com/2021/07/21/tutorial-how-to-make-waffle-bath-towels/
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
