Best Yarn for Crochet Towel Holders

When choosing a yarn for your crochet towel holders, you’ll want something durable, washable, and absorbent! Considering these functions, the best yarn is either a cotton yarn or a cotton blend.

  1. Cotton yarn: This is the most popular choice for kitchen and bath items. It’s very durable, absorbent, and can easily be washed. For example, Lily Sugar ‘N Cream is a widely used brand for these types of projects.
  2. Cotton blend yarn: This yarn is a blend of cotton and other fibers, like acrylic. This retains the durability and washability of cotton while the other fibers can add softness or other desirable properties.
