    Default What kind of yarn do you use?

    I making some dishcloths and was wondering what type of yarn does everyone else use for their dishcloths? I'm using acrylic worsted weight.

    no don't use acrylic for dishcloths.... I use 100% cotton yarn. the acrylic collects oders and does not work near like cotton....also feels really gross when you get them wet.

    Peaches n Cream is a brand name for the cotton yarn.
    Cotton is a lot better for a washcloth.
