This airy and lightweight waffle-knit washcloth has a bit of a cult following at The Foundry. Luckily, it's the friendly giving-a-labrador-a-quick-après-bath-toweling, put-a-steaming-hot-cloth-over-our-faces-and-breathe-deeply-ommmm, super-excited-about-lathering-up-with-that-fancy-new-bar-of-soap kind of cult (so, you know, the kind of cult you definitely want to join). Crafted in Imbari, Japan, from 100% organic cotton, these luxuriously soft towels are made using a classic waffle weave (also known as honeycomb fabric), a traditional stitch specifically designed to give the individual fibers enough room to absorb the maximum amount of liquid and enough air flow between warp and weft to allow the cloth dry quickly. The result? A luscious and tactile low-pile towel that kisses the skin, wicks away wetness, dries fast, folds up small, and looks gorgeous doing it. Brilliant.
Note: This is larger than your standard washcloth, over a foot square. Perfect for lathering up and getting clean all over. For those of us who like to hang our cloths from a hook, this light and airy towel has a little label loop perfectly suited to the purpose.
Take Care: These rough-and-tumble towels are suitable for machine washing (cold with mild detergent, please) and tumble drying, but because of the three-dimensional waffle texture we recommend keeping them separated from hook-and-eye closures and open zippers in the machines to avoid snags.
