What type of yarn do you use to crochet washcloths?

The best type of yarn to use for crochet washcloths is made of cotton or a cotton blend. Cotton is durable, absorbent, washable and dries quickly and fully. For regular crochet washcloths or dishcloths, I am a huge fan of Lily’s Sugar’n Cream cotton yarn. It is inexpensive and so durable.

Does acrylic yarn make good dishcloths?
