Yarn for "scrubbies"???
So I'm at the dentist office yesterday gettin' a broken-in-half molar patched up. The dental assistant knows I knit. She musta seen my name of the roster for that day. She's ready for me!

She drags out a little baggy with 2 old dishcloths in it! They are her favs. Someone had knit these two scrubby dishcloths for her a couple years ago. Her husband has made cuts/holes in them by using them on his butcher knives. She wants someone to make some new ones for her. She needs to find the yarn.

I picked at the strands of the yarn itself...and they are little micro fish nets! The yarn doesn't appear to be tulle, or nylon netting. I have never seen "yarn" like this. HAVE YOU??? The dishcloths themselves feel scratchy. They are garter stitch, and about 4"x5".

Anyway, thought I'd ask y'all: have you ever seen or heard of a scrubby yarn like this??

She loves these 2 pathetic little dishcloths...and I'd knit her a couple of them as a gift if I could find the yarn. She's a sweet young woman!

I don't know if this helps or not, but a lady at my church used to crochet scrubbies like that for rummage sales, and she used 'yarn' she made out of strips of netting from the fabric store. I think she just cut long, thin strips of it and either knotted it together or just used each individual strip.

My mom loves them and swears they're better than steel wool.

By cracky, I think you found it!!!

I'd definitely want to get the spool of 3" pre-cut netting to knit along with the yarn!

Thanks Again!

Hmmmm. I gotta try this.

How about.... fishing line? That'd stay scrubbie-able, right?

That's going on my needles today. Gotta try this one!
