Cotton yarn is great for knitting household items such as towels, rugs, pillows, market bags, washcloths, pot holders, and by far the most popular. The cotton makes for a very soft yarn. It’s machine-washable and, over time, cotton actually gets softer with more use. It is also perfect for dying as the cotton absorbs the colour well.
Our cotton is durable, soft and sustainable, and is the best material choice if you’re looking to make a dishcloth or a washcloth. We even have a free pattern for you here , we’ve used a combination
stitch (similar to a Suzette stitch) to create a beautiful soft texture and a pretty scalloped edge. The textured finish also makes this pattern practical for use in the kitchen or as a gentle exfoliating face cloth for the bathroom.
If you make one of our cotton dishcloths, we’d love to see it! Remember to tag us on Instagram using @Woolyknit or send us your photos in an email. We can’t wait to see what colour combinations you choose.
When our partners are dyeing our wool, they are fully in compliance with REACH-Ordinance (EC) No.1907/2006, whilst also achieving the above standard they are accredited to OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 norm.
