Dishie Yarn

$3.99 100g / ball


Versatile enough to be used for projects around the home as well as for accessories and garments, Dishie is a worsted weight cotton yarn that has a tight spin and high absorbency. This makes Dishie not only easy to knit with, but extremely durable as well - making it your go-to choice for dishcloths, hand towels and even baby bibs. This multi-purpose yarn also works wonders when used for hats, toys, market bags and more. Available in a bright and cheerful color palette, Dishie is a great option for warm climates and easy care garments.

I would like more colors!!!

5 out of 5 stars

I was very impressed with this yarn. I've been on a kitchen and bath towel knitting spree and had been using the worsted cotton yarn that's available in local stores, and I thought it was fine. That is, it was fine until I tried Dishie. The difference in quality is like night and day. Items made with Dishie keep their color, shape and absorbency after lots of use and numerous washings, and it is a pleasure to knit with. The plys are firmly twisted, don't split easily, and the yarn slides easily on my needles. All that for about the same price (and in some cases less than) I was paying for the other yarn! I'll be using Dishie for making spa/kitchen gift sets, knowing that the items will look nice and perform well over time

I love dishie yarn and it is my favourite for cotton crafts. I also wish Knitpicks would bring back some multis--perhaps in multis each of grays,especially teals, and latte/cappuccino etc.

5 out of 5 stars

Best cotton yarn in the world, hands down. PLEASE introduce Dishie in multi and TONAL. Tonal would add some interest and class to cotton items and garments! I'll bet it would fly off your shelves.

I absolutely love Dishie cotton yarn for kitchen projects. I will NEVER EVER use PnC or SnC from the local craft stores again. My only complaint is that there are no varigated or spotted colors. Please make these available to us.

VERY disappointed to see the colors I've been using for YEARS discontinued. Please bring them back.

I love dishie but I "need" the autumn color multi for a gift. Where did it go??

5 out of 5 stars

Like all Knit Picks yarns, awesome quality, MUCH better than Sugar N' Cream. I love the colors and the tight spin. A great dishcloth/facecloth yarn!

5 out of 5 stars

I recently ordered some Dishie to try out. I love it! It's so much smoother and easier to work with than the SnC or PnC. Dishie glides over my needles and hooks and across my fingers. My hands thank you! No longer are they sore after using cotton yarn. Will definitely be buying more in the future.

The best kitchen cotton I have used! Durable, no splitting, no pilling, no annoying "fluff" coming off like most kitchen cotton. Colors are beautiful, great variety and lots of fun choices. I would love to see more multi color ways, made a lot of gifts in the multi cotton that were very popular!

I love Dishie, but I'm not buying until the multi colors come back. Please!!

Very disappointed that you no longer have the colors needed to make your animal dish cloth patterns. Difficult to make a brown bear without brown yarn!

Love this yarn, but REALLY REALLY REALLY want the multis back. Please bring them back!!!!!!!!!!!!

5 out of 5 stars

The quality of your cotton is amazing, and the colors are very interesting. I'd like even more solid colors and BRING BACK THE MULTIS!! They co-ordinated very well with the solids! I love the larger yardage balls, larger than S&C and P&C so the price is probably lower than those.

I love working with Knit picks yarn the dishie yarn is wonderful to work with and use the dishcloths along with last longer

Dishy MUTLI was the first yarn I ordered from here, I made a poncho for myself. took about 14 skeins. And then 3 others saw it, and they ordered dishy multi also. BRING IT BACK, I LOVE THE MULTI.

I love this yarn. I too miss the Dishie Multi and would love to see you bring it back.

5 out of 5 stars

Dishie is delish!!! Love it!!! I want it in all the colors!!! each to work with, love the tight wind! Thank you!

5 out of 5 stars

I love this yarn as I do all things cotton! It is very easy to work with with. The only complaint I have is that the lengths of the skeins seem to be inconsistent. I wasn't aware that 190 yds changed from color to color. However, compared with the color kenai, the color coffee skeins were all consistently shorter.

4 out of 5 stars

Dishie yarn is the best! I would like to see some lighter colors, yellow, green, etc. If you look at the smaller image of the balls of yarn, color is true. Examples: Tranquil, Azure, Creme Brûlée.

5 out of 5 stars

My very favorite 100% cotton yarn of all time! I do so miss the multi, though. I wish you would bring it back.

5 out of 5 stars

Please bring back Dishie Multi! It was the best cotton ombre yarn on the market. Spinrite can't even compete with the tightly-twisted sturdy Dishie.

5 out of 5 stars

This has GOT to be the best cotton yarn available! The tight twist makes it easy to work with - no splitting. Washes up nicely - I've made dishcloths, towels, and other items with it. Love the colors, too. Really liked the Dishie Multi!! Please bring back DISHIE MULTI!!

5 out of 5 stars

Please bring back the multi! I've got a little squirreled away for this Christmas (I make spa clothes for my girlfriends who look for them every year), but probably not enough to keep every one happy. Just ordered some plain colors to stretch it out. Nicest cotton out there!

5 out of 5 stars

I love this yarn, it's my favorite for dishcloths, but please bring back the multi-colors! Thank you.

5 out of 5 stars

This yarn is excellent quality, however, the multi has been discontinued. Those are the only colors I've ever used and will not use the solids for my projects. So unless the multi dishie comes back, I won't be purchasing anymore :(

5 out of 5 stars

I have been using Dishie for several years and I miss the multi colors very much. Is there a reason that they aren't available any longer? Please bring them back. I haven't found any other cotton yarn as nice to work with as Dishie, but I really preferred the multi colored yarns.

5 out of 5 stars

I only Ordered one ball of this yarn. As soon As I began knitting it I new it was special. Sadly or happily a friend asked to learn to knit and I started her on a dish cloth. It was much easier for her to work with than the cotton she had gotten so I sniff, traded her.. I will be impatiently awaiting my new order of dishy ??

bring the multi colors back and add more colors please love the yarn

Please bring back the multi color Dishie yarn. It makes the most beautiful dish cloths

Haven't used yet but want to add my plea for multi-colored. I want to use this yarn!

Having recenty discovered Dishie, I have to say I have fallen in love with it! Fabulous yarn! I like it so much I have recently purchased three books of dishcloth/dishtowel patterns. I am also loving the free dishcloth patterns here on the KnitPicks website. I love the fact that the yarn is a little less bulky than the popular craft store cotton yarns. It is wonderfully soft and smooth, too. Dishie makes knitting with 100% cotton more like knitting with a luxury yarn, if that is possible. Please, please make it in more colors, as well as stripes and variegated colorways. I am sure it will sell. Thank you!

5 out of 5 stars

Please bring back the dishie multi colored yarn asap! I really enjoyed using it and would like to purchase more!

In the middle of a project with multi purple dishie yarn. Is it possible to bring it back. I just hate it when I have to restart something when I run out of yarn. Thank you. Leanne

Love this yarn. Please bring back the multi dishie, it's my favorite yarn to use making dish cloths

5 out of 5 stars

MAN i did not know how much in demand the dishie multi was! I actually bought a bunch on clearance and would happily sell or trade it, I have them on my ravelry page, cchershey, if any of you are interested or even read the reviews. I love this year, but again, am not that attached to the multi. Otherwise, I will keep buying this!

2 out of 5 stars

I don't generally write reviews but no one has said anything very negative about dishie. I purchased the ball I'm using more than a year ago but never got around to using it. I found the colour I'm using (kenai) pretty identical to what is represented on the site. And it is ok to knit with, I'm not a fan of cotton. My issue is with colour transfer. My hands are blue from the yarn! I have very dry skin that will absorb colour easily so be for warned if this happens to you too.

5 out of 5 stars

This is the best cotton yarn for towels, dish cloths, placemats, etc., far superior to store brands. However, PLEASE make black! I have had to combine store brand black with other Dishie colors, and the difference is quite noticeable.

5 out of 5 stars

We NEED MULTI and MORE COLORS . Please bring back the multi and please add more colors. This is the BEST cotton yarn I have ever used.

I purchased several different colors of the MULTI yarn when they were on sale a few months ago. I just made some doilies with Heat Wave Multi. They came out so beautiful for fall! I made a set for a gift. Now am going to make a set for myself. I just got on your website to order more and it's gone!! I was going to order more of some of the other colors to, like Lodge. That made a very nice crocheted doily for Christmas...a bit different. Please bring some Multi Dishie yarn colors back!! Some different colors with lower contrast, like what you offer in Stroll sock yarn would be awesome! Some self-striping for dishclothes would be really nice, too. Now our only choice is store bought and Dishie is a far superior cotton yarn!!

The dishie multie was a great yarn. No idea why it can't be brought back.

I just received this yarn and knit a text piece. The texture is just what I was looking for in a cotton. Unfortunately, the color was completely different than what was shown on the website. I ordered tranquil hoping for a soft blue green color that would make a great beach bag. The color is MUCH darker than represented. Since I only ordered four skeins and the price is very reasonable, I am going to work keep it. Perhaps I will try a bleaching distressed look after I make the bag. Had I read these reviews before I ordered, I may not have purchased this. Lesson learned: Read the reviews!!!

5 out of 5 stars

The best cotton yarn I've ever worked with! It definitely has a more expensive feel to it than the average cotton, its a lot softer, but super durable. I made face cloths with it. The colors are also very vibrant. I'm sad that they don't carry the multi colored line of dishie cottom anymore, they were very festive.

5 out of 5 stars

I've been wanting to try this cotton for awhile now and was not disappointed. I LOVE it!!! It's NOT splitty or coarse like most cotton you find at chain stores . I would even say this cotton is too good for pot holders and such. Has no pile/fuzz either !

4 out of 5 stars

This yarn is a dream to work with. I do have to say that the colors can be pretty misleading. I ordered Tranquil and it's very dark. It honestly looks identical to Kenai on the site, not at all like it's picture. The Mulberry is also a much deeper purple than it appears to be on their website, and the Begonia is much darker as well. Keep this in mind while ordering! Aside from the issues with the website's representation, the yarn itself is really soft and great.

5 out of 5 stars

I love this yarn and have chosen it exclusively for my customer orders over several other brands of all cotton household yarn. It is soft and has a nice finish that makes it easy to work with and leave a crisp and clean feeling to the household items I make with it. I bought up several colors and some variegated ones and just came back for more variegated and am not seeing it. What a disappointment! Hopefully that is a seasonal issue and we will soon see the lovely colors blends in this wonderful yarn again.

5 out of 5 stars

Dishie does not compare to store-bought cotton yarn. I love the way it feels so soft under my fingers and how it glides on my bamboo needles. I can see how other reviews say it is superb for little stuffed animals. I just started a dish cloth and immediately placed another order!

5 out of 5 stars

I really love working with Dishie and have many colors. I wish you still had multi color. My friend wanted Thistle. You wouldn't have a few skeins laying around, would you? Let me know where there might be some.

5 out of 5 stars

I love this yarn. I was able to get a few multicolors but I see there are no more. Will you be getting anymore? Love the vibrancy of the colors and all of the cloths I have made with the multi are gone.

5 out of 5 stars

I love to knit with this yarn. Have only done dish cloths and a spa set however it is wonderful and I wish that it was carried in stores in our community.

4 out of 5 stars

Cotton yarn is definitely one of the best yarns to work with. I do notice some of the colors are completely different from what the images are. I do understand that colors vary with our monitors and what not, but after receiving my Dishie yarn of Begonia (which looked like a Hot Pink in the picture) it looks a lot like Pomegranate. I'm hoping the customer that ordered from me who I am making a bag for doesn't dislike it because it's not exactly the color she and I thought it was.

I'm working on a kitchen rug with Dishie multi - and have a solid color rug to crochet as well once the multi is completed. This yarn works so well and with two strands is making a lovely, soft rug. There are no snags as is inferior cotton brands I've used in the past. I'm very pleased.

5 out of 5 stars

I made a few dishcloths with this and with another store bought cotton yarn and there is no comparison! While this is a bit more expensive than the store brand, you get what you pay for. This was easy to knit and it glides over the needles effortlessly (unlike the store brand I was used to) and the colors are fantastic. Between the two brands in the final product, the Dishie yarn was much softer. I will have no problem using this as a washcloth for my face, while the other will be demoted to the kitchen sink. Now that I've found this, I'm making this my go to place for my yarn picks and not just for dishcloths. Just beautiful yarn that makes the final product a bit nicer. Couldn't have asked for better yarn.

I've worked with several cotton yarns over the last decade. I love to make dishcloths and baby items with it. This yarn has the BEST finished product look, best wear and lasts so much better. And for me-- the way a yarn FEELS as I work with it is most of the fun of my knitting and crocheting. This brand feels amazing. Soothing and relaxing for me to work with. :-) I need a monthly budget allowance just for yarn. My hubby calls it my THERAPY. Lol

I used this yarn to make placemats for a craft swatch. Worked up beautifully. I had to double it, and they came out great. About a skein a placemat, with just enough leftover for a small coaster. Much better quality alternative to the kitchen yarn in stores. And beautiful colors!

5 out of 5 stars

Dishie is fantastic to work with. It is so very soft! It feels like a very expensive yarn and I look forward to ordering more! I hope they introduce more colors soon because I can imagine that this will work really well for my knitted amigurumi.

5 out of 5 stars

Dishie makes beautiful, soft, durable washcloths. I've been making and using them for about a year, and my whole family loves them! The colors are strong and lasting, the yarn is easy to work with, it has excellent stitch definition, and launders well.

5 out of 5 stars

Dishie is an unexpected and fabulous find for crochet amigurumi. After years of designing for acrylic yarn, I've switched to cotton because of the beautiful stitch definition. Unlike other commercially available cotton, Dishie has a nice twist and resists splitting. Plus, Dishie softens with time: my daughter's best-loved amigurumi friends are so touchably soft you just can't put them down!
