Cotton Wash Cloths

100% Cotton or a Cotton blend works well for both knitted and crocheted washcloths.  We collect these all year.  It's an item always needed at the shelters, and is very much appreciated.

The family shelters, both Faith Mission and The Homeless Families Foundation provide packages to the families as the depart shelter living into "their home."  Washcloths and dish clothes are always a part of these packs.

Sizes and colors appropriate for adults, as well as children; but primarily adults are needed.  The adults who live outside in the elements (primarily men) are also given these cotton wash cloths, so manly colors are needed as well as the more traditional pastels and brights.

I suggest nothing smaller then 6 inches and 8 inches or larger for the men.

Not much yardage is needed to make a cotton wash cloth; might be a nice way to use up your stash; but please if you mix your cotton stash go with stripping so it's not obvious you've run out of fiber.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
