    Is this expensive for a tea towel?

    I just got this in an email and have no clue on the prices of these. The colors are so pretty!

        I would think it is more expensive to produce brightly colored ones that don't fade out quickly, than it is to produce white.

          Does colored fabric cost more than white fabric?

            I wouldn't think so.

            That link gives the same price for white. Here at M* it is the same for solids too, just like my local shop..

              I agree, that's about right for quality tea towels - check these: https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop/browse?q=towels
              Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
              it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                I used to work for a dyer and finished company. Coloured fabrics cost more to dye because if the extra chemicals needed to set the colour etc. However white fabric is cheaper as it only needs to be bleached. And natural colour is only washed (to get the starch used in weaving out) so is the cheapest of all to produce.
                Just thought I would throw in this useless(!) information!!

                  It's not useless Why do they sell it for the same price? They just mark up the white?

                      Must have been a good price because they're now sold out and are not showing a price at all. Very pretty colors.

                        That was fast! I guess I better not be so lazy next time she brings them in. Her FQ bundles sell out fast too.
