Help me find plain white linen kitchen towels!

I need to find some nice, plain white linen kitchen towels for a gift. Can anyone tell me where to find these in the Mpls/St. Paul area or online in the US? Amazon has a listing for smaller, "guest"-type towels (12" wide), but I'm looking for something a bit bigger. Something similar to this, but without stripes. I've tried Macy's, Williams Sonoma, Crate and Barrel, Kitchen Window, Amazon, eBay...and can't find anything that is (flax) linen AND plain white. Help!

Krak des Blanketiers

My housemate and I, and our across-the-hall neighbours, will soon be throwing a combined blanket fort party. If anyone has done something similar, do you have any tips for the logistics of actually constructing said fortress? We're thinking twine strung across rooms, secured at the wall by those little adhesive hook things, creating a frame for draping our linen - but there are worries about the strength of those little adhesive hook things. For reference, our apartments are 1920s Art Deco things with very prominent architraves (I think that's the word - skirting boards coming down from the ceiling, is what I mean) which we are thinking of using as our anchor points.

How long do 100% linen sheets last for?

About six years ago I spent a fair amount of cash on a good quality 100% linen sheet,pillowcases and duvet cover.The sheet and duvet cover are now worn out,the sheet in the center and the duvet cover at the top.I machine washed them regularly at 60° C with a standard non-biological detergent.I was under the impression that good linen lasted a lifetime.Do I have unrealistic expectations or am I doing something wrong?

I'm asking Heloise and Abelard

O bibliophiles of MeFi: I humbly seek your wisdom. How would you clean the white linen cover of a fine hardcover? The book is 35 years old and in good shape, but the cover has grime, smudges, flecks, some yellowing: i.e., the usual buildup a reference volume would accrue over a few decades. I've tried mild soaps, but hesitate to use anything stronger. [more inside]
