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 ( 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!
