This is the Thomas Ferguson plain huckaback weave towel, with no damask design. Traditional off-white colour, with elegant hemstitched hems top and bottom.

The large huck towel is an ideal bath or shower towel. Highly recommended for the traveller.

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. Also excellent for travelling  because they dry so easily, and quickly.

We also have customers who recommend them for the beach because they don't trap sand so much. Dry quickly and easily,are light and easy to carry.

Add elegance to any bathroom, or guest room.

Ideal for those who don't like terry towelling.

Supplied x1 loose with minimal packaging
