Each of these botanical washcloths is a perfect piece of knitting, with simple shaping and a dollop of memorizable lace. And that sweet I-cord hanging loop? Divine.

We have used linen yarn, which elevates the most humble household handknit with its elegance, easy care, and endurance. And we love the softness of cotton as a cozy alternative.

When a knit hits that sweet spot, we want to crank them out, one after another, fill drawers with them, give them to all our friends with a bar of beautiful soap. Invite one of us to dinner: You get a Camembert from Trader Joe’s and a little stack of leaves. New baby? Leaves of linen or cotton will be showered upon you, in a matter of days. This is so easy and so fun.
