Should organic cotton flats be more absorbent than flour sack towels??
I've been using flour sack towels for a few months now and love them. They're soft and they work great for daytime for my almost 2 year old. But I bought some organic cotton flats from a local mama thinking they'd be more absorbent. Well, they aren't? They're smaller by about 2 inches on one side, but the same length as my flour sack towels, but when I tested them by pouring the same amount of water on each one, they both absorbed it all and were basically full. I couldn't have added any more water to either, and the organic flats are more rough feeling than my flour sack towels too. Is that just what organic cotton feels like??
Maybe the size is making the difference or something. I don't know, I'm just kind of disappointed and feeling like I should have stuck with what I knew I liked rather than trying to find something better.
