What Yarn is Best for a Market Bag?

Cotton yarn is usually the best yarn for a crochet market bag. It's sturdy and not too stretchy, plus it's easy to wash and dry. See below for more details!

How to Wash Reusable Crochet Market Bags

As with any reusable bag, you're going to want to wash your crochet market bag regularly. The great news about crochet market bags is that many of them are machine washable and can be dried in the dryer. This makes cleaning them super easy!

The best way to wash reusable crochet market bags is to check the yarn used for care instructions. Wash your crochet market bag according to the directions on the yarn. Cotton yarn can typically be machine washed in warm water and tumble dried on low heat.

If you're unable to find care instructions for the yarn, then the safest method is to wash by hand and lay flat to dry. The overall process might take a little longer, but you can be sure that your market bag will still be in great shape when you're done.
