The Walmart here in Clinton only had neutral colors, no reds. Not really sure why it was so hard to find a red cotton (besides Knitpicks Moroccan Red avail. May 31!).
I have Cottonease but the color I think is called Terrcotta so I don't think it would work for a apple washcloth but thanks for the suggestion!
I ended up buying some Lion Cotton online from Joann.com. And because I spent more than $35 I get free upgrade so it will be here Thursday!
