8/2 unmercerized cotton is the most popular weight of cotton for kitchen towels and is a great staple to have on hand. It is easy-care as long as any fringe is braided or twisted. It has a matte finish and is quite absorbent. You can stock up on the natural for the main color and then choose the 8-ounce tubes of 8/2 in dyed colors for the accents.

Please note that this yarn is open end spun. It is the more economical spinning method but doesn't make the strongest yarn. If you'd like a stronger 8/2 cotton, order the 8-ounce tubes of ring spun 8/2 cotton linked above or the Warp Twist yarn from Henry's Attic.
