I like cloth napkins because they are washable and re-useable. I have made 4 batches now of handmade tea towels/dish towels (everyone says they are too nice to use for drying dishes so they can also be used in a bread basket for color, texture and decoration on your table). I use various types of cotton. Some have variable texture and some are thicker 8/2 cotton blend. I enjoy making them and even sold a couple of the really colorful ones.
