Crocheting With Cotton Yarn Types
You will want to use cotton yarn for your dishcloths, kitchen towels and potholders. A blend of cotton can be used for any of them except the potholders or hot pads. You don’t want the yarn to melt. There is a chance with acrylic yarn that is made out of plastic.
I would suggest a darker color of cotton yarn for washcloths and kitchen towels. I have found lighter colors stain easily.
Lily Sugar N Cream Cotton Yarn
I like to use this yarn for dishcloths and potholders. It is a little thicker than some of the other cotton yarns. It is a little stiffer too which works well for the potholders.
This cotton yarn comes in lots of colors, both solid and multi-colored. It can split which is common for many cotton yarns.
Lion Brand 24/7 Yarn
This yarn is 100% mercerized cotton gives the yarn incredible color and sheen which will last through multiple wash cycles.
This yarn is lighter and does not absorb too much water. There ae 37 solid colors for you to try. This yarn doesn’t split and is easy to find.
Peaches and Crème Cotton Yarn
This cotton yarn comes in a variety of colors. It is a little soft and thinner than Lily Sugar N Cream Yarn. The softness makes it better for a face washcloth.
It is easy to get and work with. You can pick it up at your local Walmart or order it online. It is available in large 14 oz cones.
