Cotton/acrylic mix for dish/te towels?
I'm probably being really dense asking this but...is it ok to use a cotton/acrylic mix for making dish/tea towels (ones for drying dishes not washing)?

I've got lots of Sirdar Spree Chunky (http://www.cpu-enterprises.com/sirda...ky-spree-x.htm) which is 60% cotton and 40% acrylic and was thinking of making the towels as presents.

Also any pattern suggestions are welcome!

With the 60% cotton content, your "Sirdar" should be perfect. There's enough cotton for the cloths to be absorbant!
