Will this work?
Will Knitpick's shine and shine twist work for dishcloths? It is 60% Pima Cotton and 40% Modal (whatever that is). I don't know if dishcloths need to be 100% cotton. They have some pretty colors. What other kinds of yarn do people use for dishcloths? I use sugar & cream(?) and peaches & cream. What else is out there? I am looking for some pretty colors.

I think it will work....its just softer & smoother than kitchen cotton and MIGHT not be quite as "scrubby". I DO think Shine would make nice FACE cloths.

While we're on the subject of dishcloths... I made some with left over acrylic yarn, they're still good to use right? Or for some reason they have to be cotton?

Well, is there a place online to buy "scrubby" cotton. I have looked at all the links to sites on this site and can't find any.

Lily Sugar N Cream and Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton can be found at any Joann's, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc.... When I said "scrubby" I just meant that it has a texture that is rougher than the Shine. I think that's what most use for dishcloths, but of course there's no law.

I've made body puffs, but only crocheted ones. If anyone is interested in one pattern I've used, I'll dig up the link. {It's one one of my disks from the old pooter}
