Cloth wipes
 
would a corcheted or knitted washcloth work just as well?

If it's an absorbent, natural fiber, it would work great. Isn't that a lot of work though? How many wipes do you plan on making?

like thirty. Its easier to me then sewing the receiving blanket squares together


I was going to use acrylic yarn though...I know thats not natural but I'm pretty sure its absorbant... I dont know.

I don't think acrylic yarn will work well at all. Frankly, I don't think this will work unless you can find a cotton yarn (which I don't think I have seen?).

I have all cotton dish cloths that are knitted and crochet'd I think as long as it is a tight stich it would work well, acrylic...not so much! I think it just might move the junk around and not really pick anything up!

you could use pinking shears and just cut the flannel the fraying is pretty minninal this way.

There is cotton yarn, but I think you will be better off to try something else. Cut t-shirts into squares, they don't fray. Or use baby washcloths.

I cut up old fleece blankets which are synthetic but they work well. And they don't fray or get all balled up in the wash.
