Dough Fermentation Cloth – LINEN “Couche”
23-1/2” width (60cm)
Made of 100% natural linen fibers with no chemical color or treatments used, linen is the best material for proofing breads. Linen is very durable, but flexible and light, which allows the folds needed separating the shape of dough. Shaped loaves of bread are placed in between the folds of linen to help the bread maintain its shape during proofing, reduce the amount of space needed in between the loaves, and prevent the loaves from proofing into each other. Linen will absorb the excess moisture of the dough and minimize stickiness during proofing or overnight retarding but will not dry it out, giving a nice thin crust. Maintenance: scrape or brush after every usage, and then hang to dry before using again.
SOLD BY THE METER ( it is recommended to hem the edges to prevent fraying)
