Handkerchiefs
« on: January 16, 2017, 09:56:05 PM »
Anyone have recommendations on really nice and soft handkerchiefs? I typically use the plain old paisley ones. But this winters been a cold one and my nose needs an upgrade. (Preferably from Amazon.)

Hey Kaput,
Not on Amazon, but Etsy. This lady is from Florida and her work is flawless; you can find her shop on Etsy and look for "moocowmomma".

I've found that most of the 'cool' EDC hanks, the kind that are popular right now, are really bad at being handkerchiefs. The material is all wrong, they're too thick and in general not what a handkerchief should be. Some of the most popular names are the worst offenders. I wish I could stop buying them but they look so cool! :D

Agreed,
Those simple junky ones are the best, especially after they've been through the wash a few times. These newer ones are very nice but the fabrics are out of wack, there too rough, I guess it depends on what your going to be using them for, show, hands, nose? At the same time they can be very expensive, if you own a sewing machine you can make the best, find some cool looking fabric for show, then some super soft fabric for the other side, then just stich them together, it's not hard, I did it myself. I also have another set to do which I might do today since you brought this up.

I've made the mistake of trying to get a nice looking fabric and ending up with hankies that won't absorb anything, no good for my uses. My best luck has been with second hand ones where there's no packaging or anything and it's easy to feel the material.

I think I'm going to have to make an ultimate winter hanky, get a nice pattern, but then on the other side put a somewhat matching nice fuzzy felt or flannel for soft nose wiping.. softer then the arm sleeve!

I have some with fleece, and some with micro fiber but I don't use them for nose wiping. :D

But if you had to that would be the best, yet my prob is sunglasses, the newer hankys I made are kinda rough and don't want to clean my sunglasses with unlike my simple store bought broken in hankys, which are the only thing that don't streak the glasses..

I had one made with a microfiber cloth backing for my glasses and it is amazing. It's just a tiny thing I only use it for my glasses. I can't stand smeared up lenses.
