Disclaimer: Although this yarn was given to me, I have not been compensated to review this yarn. All opinions in this post are my own.
I found this yarn so easy to fall in love with. Due to the nature of the yarn, it’s a bit more difficult to work with, but I love the final texture in the fabric. And I really love it for scrubbing dishes, pots and pans. The yarn is 100% polyester, which means it’s non-absorbent; so you can’t use it to wipe down the kitchen counters. However, it dries fast and is a must-have for the kitchen sink.
This is my first time trying this yarn out, so am not sure on the durability, but it does look like it’s going to last a good long time.
Although the yarn is perfect for dish scrubbers, I can also see this in pretty flower appliques, keychains and in other embellishments.
