Where can I get terry tea towels to use for napkins? The ones I have used for years have had it! I've tried shop towels as a substitute but they are too scratchy, bar mops are too big, plain cotton not absorbent enough. I really like tea towels best. Anybody have an idea where find them? I googled them and found you folks.
Try finger tip or guest sized towels. Also consider large wash clothes, usually the more expensive ones. My dollar store carries a lot of terry towels for the kitchen, sold as dish towels.
If you don't find what you are looking for, fabric stores sell terry cloth.
Terry cloth shrinks because it is mostly cotton, so if you buy some you might want to wash it first. If you have a sewing machine you could sew the edges turning them under. A serger can put an edge of thread around. Sewing by hand is another way of doing it.
