I have noticed that there is a scented yarn out there and would like to know if anyone has seen it and if they did have they bought it and used it. I am curtious as I am not able to locate it in stores and don't want to buy on line without knowing anything about it. Many thanks :P

There is a string on this subject from a couple of weeks ago. Most of the ladies were not impressed. They found the scent may have been nice at first but become cloying and just too much to handle after a short time. There were a few that did like it, but it was the minority. I scent my yarn anyway by storing it in a place with a bar of soap/satchet in the cabinet/box. Nothing to make me or the recipient of my gifts get itchy and the scent washes out when we wash it anywa

I have COPD/Emphysema and strong scents are a real problem for me. These yarns carry a very strong scent to them. I would say if you have any respitory issues it would be best not to use it.

My grand daughter got some not knowing it was scented. It made her sick, and I wondered what the smell was. I can't handle the scents in some stores, or the dried flowers and some baskets.

If you can't find it in the stores ... I would imagine the manufacturers got smart and discontinued it. Scented anything is a bad idea in my opinion. And I don't even have any physical issues with scents; just don't like 'em!

I opened a package of "scented" yarn at a yarn shop one time. Oh, yes! It was scented, all right! It smelled like rotten fish! I brought it to the attention of the clerk, she took a big healthy whiff, and ran for a waste basket at the back of the shop. It was removed from the shelf. A few days later, I found that same bag at the thrift store down the street from the yarn shop. It was there for a couple of months before it disappeared.

I buy unscented everything and am not in the least tempted to try scented yarn. Most scents are offensive to my poor nose! And I have allergies which are aggravated by perfumes.

Whether you like it or not is an individual thing. I would never use it for a gift unless I knew in advance that the recipient of the gift liked it.
Some people use fabric softener sheets to cover up the odor of cigarettes in items they sell or gift. To me, the fabric softener sheets are unpleasant even before they are combined with the cigarette smoke they are supposed to mask. There are scents I love, but I don't want them in a yarn I use. It's a very personal and individual thing.

Peaches and cream makes it. My daughter had some. She liked it. The smells goes away after a few washings. It's Peaches and Cream for washcloths, I think she found hers at WalMart

I am using the scented cotton right now too, & yes it can get strong at times. I too scent my own with a bar of soap. I tryed Irish Spring once & it is way to strong. Also, the scented has a different feel to it & works up well..Try it to satisfy yourself. Either you like it or you don't. It's worth a try. Would I buy more????? If it's on sale!
