I've searched and searched here, and on Ravelry, to try and find out if cotton or linen is better for dishcloths and facecloths, both for knitting up and using. I plan to make a bunch for holiday gift giving.
The DBNY girls have loads of bags of linen in what seem to be pretty good prices (has anyone gotten these??), or am I better off just getting cotton?
I found the posts about the various cotton brands, which were really helpful, but all I've been able to find about the linen is that the dishclothes will "outlast the cockroaches" (thanks, to ChroniclesofYarnia). Am definitely willing to spend a little more for the linen if they'll last a lot longer and/or look prettier.
