Cotton dishcloths and linen dishcloths

Cotton dishcloths and linen dishcloths

We've been sending out many orders of our 12-pack of traditional cotton dischloths. They're 100% cotton, a handy large size, and traditional waffle weave for extra absorbancy - great for a variety of kitchen jobs such as wiping down worktops.

WIth stripes in six different colour options, you can use different colours for different jobs around your home.

For those of you who prefer linen, our linen dishcloths are popular too. They're 21 inches x 15 inches, with a wide weave that is supple and dries quicky for improved hygiene. 

These useful household items are on our secure online shop so you can order from home, or you are welcome to call me to order by telephone on 01874 623613 (while the shop is closed due to coronavirus, calls to the shop number divert to my mobile).

We are dispatching online orders and telephone orders most days by Royal Mail from Brecon Post Office..

Coronavirus update

We are still taking online and telephone orders, and will continue to do so as long as Brecon Post Office remains open for us to send your order to you.

I am still available for appointments, and you are welcome to contact me by telephone on 01874 623613 or 07731926832. I will be in the shop most days, but do phone ahead if you are planning to visit in case I am away seeing customers. I can help customers start the research process for made to measure suits and other garments, by assisting with selection of fabrics, linings etc. This will be a useful service for customers who are planning ahead for events later in the year.

My mother will not be in the shop because she is self-isolating - but she remains in good spirits!

Popular Christmas products!

Popular Christmas products!

Handkerchiefs, socks, pyjamas, and nightshirts are always popular Christmas buys, but this December we've also sold an unusually large number of our traditional roller towels and range towels. Many of them have been ordered online, by customers in Scotland and the north of England - thank you!

Roller towels and range towels (with poppers so you can hang them around the handle of an Aga or other range cooker) are a wonderfully practical product, and they look great in the kitchen or utility room. They're an absorbant and hardwearing combination of cotton and linen.

Many of our customers buy a set of towels in the different colours (red stripe, blue stripe, green stripe, and neutral). The black range towel looks especailly good on a black range cooker.

We're dellighted to be sending so many of these towels out to our online customers this Christmas.
