Re: Cloth wipes

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?

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?).

Re: Cloth wipes

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!

Re: Cloth wipes

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.

Re: Cloth wipes

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.
