You can also make washcloths out of linen or hemp - just about any plant material as they are absorbant. Linen and hemp will soften up after washing and drying too, and they are rot-resistant.

Acrylic holding water is probably as result of the fibers trapping the water, rather than the fibers absorbing the water.
