Can anyone suggest a nice soft cotton yarn that's suitable for baby washcloths? I have some Patons Bumblebee, but not enough in neutral colours and since I'm knitting for someone who doesn't know what the baby is, I need some more neutrals.
Thanks!!!

IMO the dishcloth yarn isn't soft enough so....

I totally second Shine Sport. It is wonderfully soft the colours are great.

There is an Australian Brand called "Heritage" and they do a fingering and DK weight cotton which is just LOVERLY knit up, quite cheap too (only about AUS$4 a ball).. I'm pretty sure there are US places that sell it too :D
