Cottolin is a traditional choice for table linens and dishtowels and this yarn is in the most popular weight for towels. The linen content makes the fabric more absorbent and the cotton content makes tensioning the warp easier. This line of cottolin uses organic cotton, so you can feel good about that, and the price allows you to use several colors in a project without breaking the bank. This is the same weight as 8/2 cotton, so you can substitute it for projects calling for 8/2 cotton.
