Thomas Ferguson Irish Linen / Cotton Union glass cloth.
This is a traditional centre striped, lettered "Glass Cloth". Made to the same tried and tested Thomas Ferguson design for many years. This is the Thomas Ferguson commercial/pub quality tea towel. It is a favourite for pubs and restaurants because of its low lint drying, and its durability, and its reasonable price. It is excellent value because it usually lasts much more than twice as long, as a cheaper version half its price. This is a good heavy quality linen/cotton glasscloth, and can be used just as easily in the home. It is an excellent economic drying cloth for your glassware, or dishes. The ability of flax to absorb water rapidly is particularly useful for this application. Linen is about 20% stronger when wet than dry; which helps it withstand mechanical treatment in laundering and in use.
Machine washable at up to 60°C for the best results let the tea towel dry naturally. Dry cleaning and tumble drying can weaken the linen fibres. It is recommended to wash the tea towel a few times prior to usage as this increases absorbency.
