If you prefer having all four sides are your couche protected from fraying, this one has the two cut edges serged (or overlocked).
The edges, when cut from a larger bold of flax linen have two frayed edges where the cut was made. Since the couches are not typically washed, the fraying that might occur would be minimal, but if you're worried about it, then buy the ones that have been put through a special sewing machine to overlock the edges to prevent fraying

Also, known as a proofing cloth, a baker's couche provides a bed for your loaves to rest in as they rise. Nestled in the folds of the floured linen cloth, your baguettes will hold their shape as they rise.
After they have risen, roll them onto a peel and slide them onto a hot baking stone. You're just minutes away from those the fabulous, crusty, artisan baguettes.
Maintaining your couche is simple: Brush flour off the couche when done. If dough sticks, allow it to dry, then scrape off. There is no need to wash your couche.
Linen is made from 100% natural flax fibers, untreated and unbleached.
Heavyweight too: 11.75 oz/square yard. A sturdier linen than other similar products.
