In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry witnesses a memory of a young Tom Riddle asking Professor Slughorn about Horcruxes: enchanted objects in which a magical person conceals a portion of their soul, rendering themselves immortal. Despite his teacher’s strong advice against it, Riddle—the future Lord Voldemort—eventually creates seven Horcruxes: Marvolo Gaunt’s ring, Salazar Slytherin’s locket, Helga Hufflepuff’s cup, Rowena Ravenclaw’s diadem, his own diary, Harry Potter, and Nagini the snake. The only way to truly destroy Voldemort is to destroy the Horcruxes.

These seven Horcrux-themed washcloths may not make you immortal, but they will help keep you clean! Knit back and forth in rows with knits and purls creating a relief texture—using cotton for durability and ease of care—these washcloths are the perfect accessory for the bathroom. Each completely reversible washcloth represents a different Horcrux.

1 hank will make one washcloth.
