Which Yarn for a Towel?
I've been renovating my home for a few years now and its almost in a state where we can stop and enjoy it.
Hubby and I both have important(ish) birthdays this year and are hoping to have a joint party in the summer which will involve lots of guests staying over.

I want to knit some guest towels and facecloths, that they can take away with them but I dunno which Yarn to use for it. (I already know which flavour of organic soap I'm gonna wrap in each guests facecloth though - priorities squiffed maybe?).

Any suggestions?

Ideally, I'd like something that doesn't take to long to knit up, and is soft and absorbent. I'll only be doing facecloths and hand towels, nothing too large as there are gonna be at least 5 in the house and potentially another 6 in tents in the garden.
