AKICILJ: really absorbent rags

Does anyone have a fail-safe source or recommendation for really absorbent cloth rags? As in, the first drop of liquid to touch it will instantly soak in?

We had a bag in the basement, leftover from some home improvement project, that are perfect in this regard. But there's not enough of them, and two different attempts to get more have failed—they looked the same or otherwise equally absorbent, but were not. (A microfiber towel has also proved unsatisfactory.)

On a related note, Chad's blog has my favorite picture of SteelyKid so far.
