Someone asked about the Scrubby yarn. It's Bernat Handicrafter cotton. It's sold by Mary Maxim. It makes a nice scrubby but is a bit expensive. $2.99 for 58 yards.

I tried it out. I liked working with it so far. I have not had a chance to use it yet.

I just bought Bernat Handicrafter for $1.99 at Walmart and Michaels. The varigated is a smaller ball at 68 yards and the solid color is 80 yards. I have also bought it online from Mary Maxim at $1.47 but shipping cost brings the price up.

It is also available in a large ball of 608 yards varigated and solid colors. I bought the varigated at Walmart for $8.97. I don't know the price of the solid color.

Scrubbies! They also have a booklet with patterns. It has a rough texture perfect for scrubbies. I made the flower scrubbie. Works great but took the whole skein..kinda expensive

I use plastic canvas "yarn" String, whatever you call it. Knit square scrubbies from it. Hard on the hands tho. tried to incorporate it with yarn, doesn't work too well.

I wasn't aware there wasn't a yarn called "scrubby". I just use the regular Handcrafter to make my scrubbies, dishcloths, and swiffer covers.
Thank you.

Me too. Much less expensive.
And I think it works better. I wasn;t happy with Scrubby yarn. Didn't work in the kitchen, ok in the shower to smooth your feet.
But still would rather by netting.

I really like it as a scrubby flower ... Works like a charm on pots and pans But its much too expensive for my taste. Just had to try the new yarn. :-)
