Getting Into It

Our first projects of the year, these washcloths, were quick but satisfying. Knitted with absorbent cotton yarns, these cloths are super in the kitchen or bathroom and are what most used to use before paper towels became mainstream. They are approx. 8 x 8 inches which makes them the perfect size for dishes, faces (big and small) or body. Created with texture which helps make them more “scrubbable.” Best of all, they are environmentally friendly and easy to care for. Just pop them into the washer/dryer and re-use ad infinitum.
