My favorite cotton yarn to use for washcloths is the baby cotton yarns - like Bernat. They make such soft washcloths.

Wow! Thanks for all the info! I wasn't sure, but I thought it might have something to do with absorbancy. I have never done much with wool, although I am looking forward to it this winter.

Happy knitting!
:D

Yeah. The cotton actually leaves the counter wiped, without puddles of water drops or streaky wet spots. It does absorb the best. Just finished the Ball Band washcloth from MasonDixon and used Sugar and Cream for the first time. I like it better than the Bernat Handicrafter to work with, but usually I use whatever is on sale!!! Have fun making the dishcloths! They are great portable in the car etc. projects. :XX: samm

Is there a difference between peaches and cream and sugar and cream? I used S&C but thought even after washing it was kind of stiff. I wanted to make face cloths for xmas gifts for the girls at the office, but I was less than pleased with S&C. I think it would be too scratchy for a "spa" cloth.

I've heard of using linen for face cloths. Also, the Bernat cotton baby yarn suggestion above sounds like a good one.
