    Learn something new today, thanks for sharing.
    I have one question, Are these made of silk or linen cloth?

    Hello. These are new, sealed in their original packages. They are 100% of the softest cotton. Most of my hankies were silk but I think I like these even better. Thanks for the framing idea.
