Fabric for hand sewing teatowels?
 
Looking for some fabric to hand sew teatowels. In the online quiltshop I see cotton/linen fabric, has anyone used this?
Does it hold up well in usage as teatowels?

Check out Walmart, I get them in the home department. There are several in a bundle.

I ordered yardage for tea towels from a quilt shop that had tons of yardage for them; https://www.quilterstudio.com/tea-towels-toweling.htm it says 100% cotton
Sadly they do not wick water, just move it round the plate or bowl. I've washed them at least a dozen times by now, no change.
I don't use fabric softener or sheets in the dryer, I know they can keep towels from wicking.
Will it hold up well? Sadly, probably forever. When I get over the expense they will probably end up as shop towels in the garage.

Michael's carries some nice tea towels for hand work. You might try there or Holly Lobby. I haven't done any hand work on towels for many years now. Once I got my embroidery machine I was spoiled. I made dish towels for everyone one Christmas. Back then I purchased them at Walmart in a package of 12.
