I wanted to make some dishcloths as a thank-you gift for a friend. I noticed that she had several things around a small sink area that she uses in her workshop that were pink. So I bought one P & C in a solid pink plus two of a variegated skein with pink in it, called 'Floral Bouquet'. I started on the variegated one yesterday in the car while waiting on DH to finish up what he was doing. As I was working, I thought I could some a fragrance that I didn't really like. There was nothing in the car that we'd bought recently that would smell like that so I held the yarn up to my nose - phew! It is scented! I looked at the label & sure enough right below the P & C logo it says "Scents, Parfums, Olores'. Who would think you would have to smell yarn before you buy it! Thankfully I only have 2 of these to use up. Guess I need to pay more attention to the label.

Huh, I've never heard of nor seen the "smelly yarn", thank you for informing me about this so now I will check labels more carefully before I buy

Lots of place, especially doctors' offices, request that you not wear perfume due to allergies of other people. I would think this would apply to scented yarn, also. Thanks for the heads up. I, too, will watch, or smell, before I buy.

I had a purple one that i was making a dish scrubbie for a swap partner.
As i was making it i thought i was smelling faint lavendar, but i have none in my house?
When i was looking over the label as i rolled the leftover, i noticed rhe word "scented""
I will look closer at labels, not fond of scented fibers esp since i was going to use some for baby wash cloths

I have seen, but not tried, the scented Peaches and Cream - do you suppose it might wash out?

I hope so! She might not have trouble with perfumes, but I do. So many of them give me a headache. Laundry soaps & dryer sheets are the worst, & that's what this yarn smells like to me. :thumbdown:

I am one of those that can't wear or be around anything with scents (triggers my asthma). At one of our weekly knitting group a woman was knitting with this yarn and it instantly triggered an asthma attack. And yes, it did smell horrible (in my opinion). I had to leave the room...the scent was really strong.

Even though I don't have allergies I hate the penetrating smell of scented yarns, laundry detergent etc. Unfortunately my husband loves that Tide smell and insists I use it for all his laundry--whew!

I say a double thank you for the heads up. Some smells actually cause my asthma to start up. And once started it's hard to get it stopped. Why would they make scented yarn anyway? Ugh.

there is a particular line of cotton that has the scent incorporated into the fibers, deliberately. personally, i am not so sure i'd like to have the wafting fumes about my person as i work with the yarn. but i think the idea is a neat one, just not for me.

i did get a yarn shipment one time that i had to febreeze first cuz it had a ... weird... smell that lingered even out of the cardboard box. febreeze even gets to be too heavy in fragrance at times. but i did find a good odor neutralizer, but i've forgotten what it was and where i got it...memory, first thing to go? grins, debra

I used that yarn for a dress for my little niece because it was the right color. The fragrance comes out as you work with it. After I finished, it was a lot less smelly. It smells like lavender essential oil which is supposed to be relaxing. I did like the smell, but I don't have allergies.

I received lavender scented cotton yarn in a swap and I loved it. I didn't know it was scented until I started knitting with it. I don't have any allergies.
