: : : Is it a "washcloth" a kind of towel but smaller in size?

: : : thanks a million

: : I thought it was a flannel.

Both are made with the same material as towels, so yes, a wash cloth is a small towel. I have yet to see a flannel made of flannel fabric however. Does anyone know if they ever were? It sounds like it would have been rather nice in that fabric.
