I don’t know much about dish cloths, I made a few and wanted to like them but so far we are not getting on well, I used dishcloth cotton.
I know some washable nursing pads are made of wool for the absorbent properties and the antibacterial property. Nursing pads need to be absorbent, there are some which are different humber of layers for how absorbent one needs them, eg 2 layers of merino wool, or 3 layers with the middle layer being felted for added absorbency.
I’m no expert, but I think this must mean felted can be more absorbent so perhaps its ok for a cloth to gradually felt up the more its washed and used.
Maybe you can give me some top tips to help me make a dishcloth I’ll fall in love with? I’d like to switch to fully washable reusable dish cloths, cleaning cloths, polishing cloths but I’m still buying various types of supermarket sponges, microfiber cloths and scourers etc.
