Waffle cloth, also known as waffle weave fabric or honeycomb fabric, is a woven fabric that has a recessed pattern created by cords running either vertically,horizontally or both, creating a square design (hence the waffle name).
Waffle cloth is generally made of cotton, but can also be made of wool, polyester-cotton blends or microfiber.
Waffle cloth comes in several different gauges from fine to medium to coarse. The color most commonly associated with waffle cloth is white, though it does come in a variety of colors and prints.
It is woven in a way that makes it very absorbent, but also allows air to flow through it so it dries quickly. This makes waffle cloth ideal for anything where absorbency is needed.
