Dishie Yarn

$2.99 100g / Skein


Our practical prodigy and home décor hero, Dishie is a hardworking worsted weight 100% cotton yarn with a tight spin and high absorbency. This makes Dishie not only easy to knit with, but extremely durable as well - the go-to choice for hardwearing projects that will last for years, even with daily use. Made for dishcloths, this stash staple is naturally machine washable and stays bright and colorful wash after wash, making it the ideal choice for kitchen knits such as dishcloths and hand towels. This multi-purpose, easy-care yarn is also soft, smooth, and cottony, working well for rugs, toys, and market bags. Proudly practical, Dishie is an elevated workhorse yarn that will level up your handmade home in the kitchen and beyond.

Great yarn, great price however, I've found the colours are not quite as described. I know our monitors are all calibrated differently and so I tend to pay more attention the written descriptions. Sadly "Linen - light beige colour with soft pink undertones " is, in my opinion, more a strong yellow beige with salmon pink undertones. Reminds me of those awful school socks. Very 1970s, early 80s.

I have used Dishie for several projects and I generally like it. It is a softer cotton and feels good on my hands to knit with. It holds up well after several washings. Two negatives - the worsted weight is very thin and affects gauge. It doesn't really make a thick enough dish cloth. Second, the colors are misrepresented - specifically I ordered Clarity which is described as a powder blue. It is not blue at all. It is simply light gray. This is odd because I've ordered Clarity in Brava yarn and it IS a powder blue. Can't understand why Knitpicks can't do a better job of representing colors. This is an ongoing problem.

I hated cotton yarn until I tried this one. it's so soft and doesn't split and the colours are lovely. It crochets and knits equality as well. This will be my go to yarn from now on.

I love this yarn so much its great to knit with and I have also been making little baby jumpers and cardigans with it which is so easy for the mums to throw in the washing machine. Fantastic colours also.
