Can anyone tell me if there's a difference between the Peaches N Cream cotton yarn and the Sugar N Cream cotton yarn? I want to knit up some dishcloths for Christmas gifts, and I've found the Sugar N Cream at my local Michael's, but haven't spottent the Peaches.
This is my first experience knitting with cotton, and the Sugar N Cream is a bit stiff to work with. I'm just wondering if the Peaches N Cream is any different.
I think Peaches and Cream is more likely to be found at walmart than the Sugar n'... Somewhere online I read that Peaches tended to shrink more than Sugar n'... after washing them.... Some people find one less stiff than the other...
Peaches and cream is sold at Walmart; as far as I know, they're the only retail store that carries it. They're pretty much the same, though have different colors. Lion Cotton is similar too. They're all stiff at first, but as you work with it and when the project is washed and dried a few times, the yarn becomes very soft. For something a little softer from the start, there's Lion's CottonEase with with acrylic and Bernat Cotton Tots.

I just bought some Peaches n Cream from Walmart to knit up some dishcloths for gifts and from just the feel of the skein I think the PNC is softer. I do not like knitting the Sugar N Cream because of how stiff it is. I'm hoping the PNC will be better, but won't be finding out for a while. And I also like that it is cheaper.
