Napkin Yoga

I have yet to find a substitute for a white Irish linen napkin with a high thread count per inch, cut perfectly on grain, and honestly hem-stitched. This kind of napkin is an expensive habit, but the cost per use is low. It looks good with any table setting.

A good linen napkin in a generous size puts a guest at ease. It's comforting to have one's clothing protected. The more informal the meal, the more welcome the napery. Cover the other end of the napkin spectrum with bartender's terry wipers. -30-
