I chose Lion Brand Re-Up Yarn. I like that it is a recycled cotton yarn. The yarn comes in smaller skeins. It is soft but like other cotton yarn it has a tendency to separate.

Crochet washcloths are great gifts too. You can choose a color to go with their décor or a neutral that would go with anyone’s style. They are practical too.
