Baby Washcloth and Dribble Cloth in Bamboo Cotton

A new mom was in to the store a few weeks ago to get some cotton to knit facecloths for her baby. She had used her mother's cotton dishcloths to wipe the little one's face while she was visiting and found them to be wonderful at gently cleaning away all sorts of leftovers from baby's face.
By making these cloths of organic cotton, you get the glorious softness of this earth friendly material and the reassurance that baby is also having the benefit of a completely chemical free fibre as all of the colours are natural and undyed. These are quick, easy and luxurious little gifts that any mom would be pleased to receive.
