When you're thinking of what crochet pattern to work up next, you're constantly thinking about all the different types of yarn out there. My favorites are the soft, chunky yarns that work up quickly. When thinking of yarns, all I picture are worsted weight, lace, chunky, and ultimately just soft yarns. When I had the chance to work with Premier Washi Yarn, I wasn't prepared.

Washi Yarn isn't your typical soft yarn, but better yet, it's a rough yarn made of 100% polyester. A yarn like this is typically used to make crochet and knit dishcloths; it's great for scrubbing and getting those caked-on crumbs off your best dishes.

Each skein has 92 yards with a net weight of 3.5 ounces. A medium weight yarn like this is perfect for machine washing and drying, allowing your dishcloths to come clean and look brand new. Washi comes in a variety of colors, so you can match your kitchen decor. To name a few: pink, royal blue, red/white, green/white, orange, yellow and much more. 

I mentioned this yarn was great for dishcloths, but it can also be used to make loofahs to use in the shower. A scrubby, scratchy yarn like this will easily take off those dead skin cells, if it's capable of cleaning dirty caked-on dishes. If you're not keeping these things for yourself, you can give a fun gift package with a few loofahs and shower shoes or slippers, along with a robe. For those who love being in the kitchen, you can give scrubbies or dishcloths along with towels.

When you think your current dishcloths have seen its last days, invest in a few skeins of Premier Washi Yarn; you'll love what you can create.

I love this yarn, I just wish it was cheaper at my local yarn store..

Cheryl, I've never seen or used this yarn, is it scratchy or soft? I looks like it would be great for so many different projects but want to make sure it's consistency before purchasing it online.

Love the idea of this yarn would be thrilled to make some dish cloths with this.

This is a fun and spunky yarn that I would definitely use!
