  • Creative Bubble

    Rico Yarns Creative Bubble

    Thanks to the innovative Creative Bubble, boring sponges are a thing of the past. The yarn was especially developed for knitting and crocheting individual sponges, but can just as easily be knitted or crocheted into dishclothes or scrubbies. Use individually for a tawashi, or add a scrubby border to spice up a boring dishcloth! The scrubby texture to this yarn lends itself to a wide range of knit and crochet gauges.

    100% Polyester

    24sts = 4" on 2.75mm / US 2 needles is what is listed on the label, but we recommend experimenting with your needle size of choice to get as tight or loose a textured scrubby as you like!
