Maybe Charles knows if any of the AWESOME Patagonia cheeses (I cry for La Junta cheeses) are "exported" north?????

I use thin unbleached white dish clothes (really cheap ones the nannies hate) then wash them (for many things thickening yogurt is one of them), it’s better for the environment than single use cheese cloth ;)
It's all about the wine.

My sister in law gave me some 100% cotton muslin cloths for the baby that worked ok (but were bleached if that's an issue for you.) Also, paper coffee filters work great for straining yogurt.

Are you making the yogurt yourself? If you do, add powdered milk to it so it will be thicker.
