View Full Version : Lion Brand Cotton Ease for dish/washcloths

Hello, I am currently making a cardigan for dd using Lion Brand Cotton Ease and I am loving working with this yarn. So nice to work with and the stitch definition is great.

I was wondering if anyone has used this to make dishcloths or washcloths. I am going to make some washcloths as teacher gifts. Cotton Ease seems so much softer and more pliable that the SNC cotton that I have previously used.

This yarn is 50% cotton and 50% acrylic.

I've used it and love the texture... the cloths have less shrinkage and there's just enough cotton to keep the absorbancy!

I love my cotton ease wash cloths! So do my mom and sil. They just get softer as you use them. My mom requested a bunch for Christmas gifts to give to her friends. I even put one in my swap pal's package to complete her color theme. I think that would be a great teacher gift! Everyone I have ever given one to has been really touched and they love them.

Thanks so much everyone. I keep hearing how you have to use 100% cotton. Now that I know you can use this yarn I will be much more excited about getting these done.
