Looking for a pattern that would be suitable for newborn babies and durable.

Using 8/2 unmerc cotton with a 20 epi sett. Loom has 8 shafts and 1000 heddles (next project will use 6 shafts and almost all the heddles)

Would plain weave be ok? Or is there a twill that works well for towesl and stays soft?
