These 100% cotton handkerchiefs are the perfect extra-large 16" size. They feature classic plaid borders and rolled, stitched edges. Plus, they're gentle on sore noses! Set of 12 includes 4 each - blue, gray and tan. Machine washable.
Once the sizing is washed out, these are nice & soft even on tender, abused noses. But they come out of the dryer in tight, broomstick-fold-like wrinkles! (Which, in a way, makes them even softer because it adds loft and "fluff" to the hankies.)
They'll most likely be hiding in a pocket or purse, so it's not like anyone beside the nose owner will see them. But as wrinkled as they are, they're a little bit hard to fold and store in a drawer!
But to me, it's simply silly to iron hankies! My Mom STARCHED my Dad's hankies - and boxers - when I was a kid. No thanks! Not just "no starch, please," but I have better things to do than ironing hankies!
So I do like these nice, big, soft, handsome hankies in spite of - or maybe even because of - the wrinkles! And the price tag is very easy to live with!
Save the rainforest AND treat yourself nicely! Switch from flimsy, wasteful paper tissues to cloth hankies! (Particularly if you're a heavy user!)
[Same goes for nice, substantial cloth napkins! They're for everyday - like they were 100 years ago - not just for company! Find a cheap source of cotton hotel napkins by-the-dozen, save the rainforest, save the landfill, and treat yourself right!]
