Seed Stitch Dishcloth

I make these in sets of two using organic cotton or linen. They are great for everything from wiping down counters to using for baths.

What is the difference between using cotton and linen? I knitted up one cotton dish cloth but it has lost all of its color and is a bland putty color now. Can that be avoided? Thank you.

A cotton dishcloth will quickly lose its shape and will fade with frequent washing. A linen dishcloth will retain its shape better, might still fade, but will become softer with each washing. I like to use undyed (or natural) yarn which maintains its color.
