Pros:100% cotton, gets softer with use, variety of colors, durable, easy to care for

Cons:None

The Bottom Line: The Lion Cotton Yarn is a fantastic yarn to use to make durable kitchen and bath cloths.


I've been knitting up a storm lately and have been going through my stash of Lion Cotton Yarn to make dishcloths and washcloths.

The Product
Lion Cotton Yarn is a worsted weight, 100% pure cotton yarn that is available in a variety of colors.  It is available in 5 ounce (236 yards) skein for solid colors and 4 ounce (189 yards) size for multi-color skeins.  The yarn retails for $4.99 a skein.  I usually purchase the skeins for $2.50 each from Joann Fabric, using the 50% off coupon.  The Lion Cotton Yarn is available at stores such as Joann Fabric as well as online at www.lionbrand.com.

Lion Brand States
"All natural, 4-ply worsted-weight yarn with great absorbency. Ideal for dishcloths, washcloths, placemats, and all kitchen / dining / bath projects, as well as garments."

My Experience
I love knitting with Lion Cotton Yarn.

The Lion Cotton Yarn is great for making dishcloths and washcloths, which is what I've been knitting for the last several weeks.  The yarn  is very sturdy and holds up amazing well, given the constant wringing and scrubbing the cloths are put through.  I have made plenty of washcloths out of the yarn and each cloth has held up well after many, many uses.  I haven't had any problems working with the yarn either; it doesn't split much and it slides easily over my knitting needles.  The yarn also doesn't break easily, which makes the knitted product very durable and long-lasting.

I like that the Lion Cotton Yarn is available in a wide range of colors, but I have found that the stores usually do not carry all the colors.  Some colors must be purchased online, which is unfortunate because I can usually purchase the skeins of yarn for cheaper in the store (given sales and coupons).

The Lion Cotton Yarn is 100% cotton and is very easy to care for as it can be machine washed and dried.  I wash mine on a regular basis to get rid of any germs and bacteria.  I love being able to throw the cloths in the wash to sanitize them, which is something I can't do with a regular plastic bath pouf.  With the colored yarn, there is a little bit of fading over repeated washes.  What is nice about the yarn is that it gets softer with repeated washings.  The yarn also becomes more absorbant.  I remember the first time I used the cloth (unwashed), it mostly pushed water around on the counter.  However, after a few washes, the cloth became one of the most absorbant cloths I've used.  The only problem is that the drying time is a bit longer.

Overall Thoughts
The Lion Cotton Yarn is a fantastic yarn to use to make durable kitchen and bath cloths.

Thanks for reading.
