Dish towels

Is a combination cotton linen absorbent for a dish towel.

I haven’t tried this but Webs is a good source of information (as well as yarn) and they recommend cotton or cotton/linen blends. Knit Picks does as well. Purchased linen dish towels work beautifully so it makes sense that the blends would too.


Knit Picks has a yarn called CotLin and if you scroll down to the reviews section on this link, several people mention using it for dishcloths:

I’ve used a strand of cotton with a strand of linen for facewashers and it worked nicely. I think the cotton provides absorption and the linen provides strength.


Thank you very much!
