Rated 5 out of 5Â by janetlynn Yes they shrink , But are Beautiful !
I bought 4 of these with my Mountain weave tablecloth.
I bought the Patriotic Blue and it is really pretty.
Just like the tablecloth I washed them as soon as I got them, and threw them in the dryer. Please realize, that's Not the recommended care. But for me, I know I will never block and hang these to dry , so I wanted to see what I'd get washing them as I know I will. My Placemats came out at about 17" X 12 " and thicker and fluffier.
That's Ok for me even though I usually use a little larger mat. You also can grab them while a little damp from the dryer and lay them out as you pull them into shape a bit.

So glad to be able to still get the traditional mountain weave products through your store. Bought two place-mats to use. Only wish - that tea-towels (or dish-towels) were still available. Mine are wearing out after buying them in the 1970's and I sure wish I could get some more.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by vhrules A nice addition to my dining room table
I purchased these along with the Mountain Weave table cloth. I noticed some new dings in my table so i purchased both to protect it. As with the table cloth my only complaint is that they aren't as thick as they were decades ago. From reading previous reviews i've come to the conclusion that they were made much better then than now. Other than that they are just what i was looking for with a very simple pattern which doesn't clash with my rug.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ME57QQ Gorgeous place mats
The mint green place mats look great with my white table cloth. I washed them immediately and they did shrink considerably, but now the weave is tight and they are an excellent size. I highly recommend these place mats.

I just changed my kitchen to blue and yellow and found the prettiest blue, yellow and white placemats. I love the country look and these are perfect on my little farm house kitchen table for two! Also they are very affordable. I recommend these and am very happy with them!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Deet Quality of Mountain Weave cloth WAY down!
I have mountain weave tablecloths, and note that the fabric on the mats I received is significantly thinner than my higher quality items purchased in previous years. I'm concerned about how long these new mats will wear.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by TwiceRetired Good Quality, but Shrink
We had previously purchased the cranberry and green placements and thought we'd get something similar with these white ones. They are much lighter in weight and also shrink noticeably with first washing. They are well made, serviceable and likely to last. We might have ordered another item if we had known the difference between these and the ones we already had.
