I purchased a scrubbie, crocheted with cotton yarn and tulle (crocheted together). From some of the posts I've read here, I thought maybe Lilly made a yarn like this. I have searched every store that might have something like that with no luck (Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Joanna and Walmart). Can anyone out in KP land give me a clue as to where I can get this type of yarn or do I have to combine the two myself???

OK, I'm not really sure if I understand what you are looking for, but could it be something like this:

Thanks for the reply. What type of yarn is the picture you posted?

Cotton and viscose silk. The shining threads running through the main thread are viscose silk. But it is not a separate thread, it's like... I don't know if I can explain it good, the thread is like... i-cord maybe, but I might be using a wrong term, it is like knitted when manufactured from some very fine threads, and they are ... let's say "knitted" together, as one thread, but are not twisted around each other... does this make any sense?

I think she used the cotton yarn and the tulle separate but together. There is a new cotton yarn out that is called scrubbie. It has very little yardage and is very costly. But the colors are very pretty. You might be better off knitting with the 2 strands together a little cheaper.

Nope, it is not the same... Sorry - I have not seen something exactly like that. Looks like there were 2 separate threads though... but than again I might be wrong.

Hi,
I've made scrubbies from the cotton yarn and tulle together. I really don't believe that there is some type of yarn with the tulle attached.
They were okay to go together and they work great.
Try and have fun.

It is probably nylon netting cut into strips and combined with the cotton yarn.

I agree with jdicks2171. There used to be scrubbies crocheted with just the netting cut in strips, so I think this is just adding the netting to the cotton yarn.

If anyone does find the yarn - please let us know. I have been cutting strips of tulle, tying them together and then knitting or crocheting with the tulle and a strand of cotton yarn. The knots seem to add to the scrubbiness of the piece when it is done, since I am making kitchen scrubbies to go with my dishcloths. Not sure my word scrubbiness is a word, but any crafter will know what I mean - tee hee : )

I remember getting an email around Christmas time that this new yarn by Lily Sugar'n Cream called scrubby was coming to a store near me. I never saw it in Walmart, Hobby Lobby, or Michaels near me. I just went to Lily website and searched their Sugar 'N Cream products and Scrubby is no longer listed. I wonder if they just did a small market and it didn't sell like they thought so they took off the market already.

Oh and does anyone know where to buy rug yarn? I used to use that with my tulle but have not found any in stores in a few years. I recently moved to TN and am not finding many yarn stores around here : ( Any suggestions for the eastern TN area?

Someone brought up in an earlier forum that they couldn't find the cotton rug yarn anymore. I've been looking since and haven't seem any either. I didn't check Aunt Lydia's website. I did see some at a yard sale. Guess I should have bought it.
