Scented Yarn

While browsing blogs, instead of doing my work, (I am the queen of procrastination when it's something I don't like doing) I came across the following link.
http://www.sugarncream.com/newsletters/august2010web.html
I have to say I'm intrigued. Has anyone tried it out there?

Well that's a first for me. I can't say that I have ever heard of that before. I wonder if washing will take the scent away? Or while using it you get fed up with the scent?
Interesting!

I have heard about these, but haven't tried them out. Much as I love and do use essential oils for healing & health, I'm not sure I really want my yarns/wools to smell...hhhmmm... Much as I like the Sugar 'n Cream cottons, I think I'll pass on these... LOL! Let us know if you give them a go, Ally :o) Happy Days ((HUGS))

I have never, ever heard of scented yarn before. How unusual! Surely it would be easier to infuse a finished item with a scent rather than knit the item with scented yarn?! x

I agree with Tracy. I would be fed up with smelling vanilla all the time.
Nahh!

Wow -- that's interesting -- I've never heard of it. It might be fun to use the lavender scented one stuffed with real lavender for sachets.

Thanks for visiting my blog! These yarns are new to me too, not especially keen on the idea either! I think it might get a bit sickly after a while. I love your new knitting bag btw!

I wonder what the scents are like. You know how some pot pourri and candles never quite smell like the real thing? The containers look like a good idea, and the heart's nice. The yarn appears to knit up well, but then what do I know, I can't knit! Show us if you make anything. x

I think it's intriguing too. Sugar and Cream yarn is kind of fun for dish rags and stuff like that, but I'm not sure I'd want my dish rag to smell like anything other than "clean>"
