peaches and cream?
Hi all,

I'm just wondering what this 'peaches and cream' is all about I've never seen it in Canada, but saw a pic of it in a post by HamaLee. I don't think you can get it in Canada.

Is it a cotton for dish cloths and the like? We only have (I have only seen in my small town) Bernat Handicrafter cotton. is this the same thing?

I'm feeling a little dense this morning... HELP!

Bernat handcrafter is a good substitution for Peaches and Creme.

Here's the website of the manufactuer of Peaches and Creme
http://www.elmore-pisgah.com/

You could also substitute Sugar and Cream by Lily
http://www.sugarncream.com/

I think they are all pretty interchangable. I buy based on availability and color. They are all cottons-good for discloths and household items.

It is indeed a cotton worsted weight. It looks and feels a lot like Lily Sugar'n'Cream if you have that. I've used it before for dishclothes and the like, I've also included it in a stash-buster shawl. I may attempt some kind of summer shirt with it or baby thingy--but I don't think it'll be comfy or pretty.

But it was $5 or $6 for an entire pound--el cheapo tester yarn!

Peaches and Cream is sold at Walmart; it's just like the Sugar n Cream. You can find it also at the link project gal posted, and at this site for cotton yarns. http://www.cottonclouds.com/shopping...p?type_is=yarn
