Ref. 165 Linen Huckaback Towel (medium sized), natural colour, Ref. 165 046 07 P462, rose Design

This is the Thomas Ferguson medium sized huckaback towel. Natural colour, with a damask rose design pattern, and elegant hemstitched hems top and bottom.

Huckaback towels, made from 100% Irish linen woven by Thomas Ferguson. Often shortened to huck towels. One of the chief merits of any towel is its capacity for absorbing moisture, like honeycomb, huckaback is well adapted for this purpose. This weave has been used since the Middle Ages to add greater volume to the linen fabric, and enhance it's drying properties. 

Huckaback towels pre-date our modern terry cloth towels (sometimes known as 'Turkish towels' in the US), which only appeared in the late 19th century. These huck towels of 100% linen are lightweight, highly absorbent, easily dried and pack away quite small so are excellent when travelling, because they take up less room than terry towels.

Add elegance to any bathroom, or guest room.

Ideal for those who don't like terry towelling.

Supplied x1 loose with minimal packaging
