Over the past few years, there have been so many new scrubby yarns become available.  I especially love all the bright colors that you can find scrubby yarns in.  Who knows, it might even make your dish washing more fun using a colorful crochet scrubby!

Scrubbies, whether for washing dishes or for washing your face, seem to have become very popular and here may be a few reasons why –

  • Reusable – They are more economical than a traditional kitchen sponge or even facial cotton rounds because you can just wash them and then reuse them for a long time instead of tossing them into the trash.
  • Easy to Make and Sell at Markets –  I know when I have done markets in the past, scrubbies were a great thing to have to sell.  They are super quick and easy, they are even something that you can sit and crochet while at your market when it seems slow.
  • Uses Little Yarn – All those scraps of cotton yarn that you may have laying around work great for making scrubbies.  It takes such a small amount of yarn that usually leftover yarn from other projects is all you need to make them.
  • Saves Money – ​Aside from not using that much yarn, which alone makes them inexpensive to make, they will last for a really long time.  If you use cotton yarn (which I recommend for scrubbies) it holds up extremely well and is very durable.  Which means that it will last for quite some time.
  • Yarn Variations – Different yarn brands have been expanding their scrubby yarn lines!  So we aren’t stuck with just having to use plain cotton yarn to make scrubbies with, we now have quite a few fun scrubby yarns.  One of my favorites is Yarn Bee Scrubology ‘Scrub It’ yarn.  It comes in an array of different colors to make some fun scrubbies. 

Popular Scrubby Yarns

You may wonder, ‘what is the best type of yarn to use for scrubbies?’  The answer would be that there are 2 different types of yarn that work great for making scrubbies.  The first would be any scrubby yarn or specific yarn that is made for crocheting scrubbies like Red Heart Scrubby Yarn.

The second best option is going to be a cotton yarn, especially if you plan on making face scrubbies as it is not as rough as scrubby yarn.
