Hi Paul, long time.
I may have some other options for you. Im going to using Supima cotton, the worlds strongest cotton for a new product see below.
I also now have the Plush series a cotton wool blend. The Super Plush has just over 2 pounds of yarn. After submersing for 40 seconds and a five minute drip dry it weighed 7.4 pounds.
And finally ProCotton will have a major improvement. Im replacing the carted cotton to a combed,ring spun virgin cotton that is apparel quality and cabled for extra strength. No shedding when you wash them and a longer service life at about the same cost. All of my cotton yarns do not contain any fillers like polyester so you get maximum absorbancy.
I still have some of the original ProCotton stuff on closeout at $50 per case regardless of the size.
