Hey, have any of you seen this yarn? http://www.bernat.com/product.php?LGC=handicrafterscents

According to the description it's "Yarn with a gentle scent that is released as you craft".

Well, I have no sense of smell, so it's not really worth it but I'm curious to hear your thoughts!

Honesty, I can't stand floral smells so this is one yarn I think I'd be avoiding. Tongue

But I'm curious as to whether this would be an irritant for people with severe allergies, etc. And how long the scent would last... Anyone familiar with this yarn?

I was looking at the jo-annes (or was it ac moore?) website the other day and saw it too..
I admit I'm intrigued...but not in a good way..I imagine it's kind of like air freshener/scented toilet paper...
great in theory/not so much so in reality..

I have enough smells going on in my world, some good (baking, freshly washed husband) others not so good (cat breath, eau de' stinky husband) I don't think I want to throw scented yarn in the mix...

They do say the smell will wash out of the yarn, but I guess it may depend on WHAT it smells like, though next time I go to the craft store I'm going to sniff one just to see Undecided

What I found fascinating about it is that they're advertising it as adding a scent to the process of making something as opposed to the finished product.

I wonder if that was on purpose, or just because they couldn't find a way to keep the smell in there after a wash?

to me, that looks a little freaky, but thankfully i won't be too tempted to try it (and therefore give myself a raging case of dermatitis)  because as far as i know it isn't available here
i really must get rid of all the yarn i'm allergic to, i just can't bear to throw it out

Have you thought of donating the yarn you can't use?

If there's a local guild or retirement home, they usually jump at the chance to get free yarn Smiley

actually, i might be able to donate it to the WI, there was a poster up in the church hall we use as a dojo, if they want it they can have it, i'll feel a bit better about it then
i suppose then i'll have a reason to go buy new yarn
but i need a project to buy yarn for

I tried some by another brand with the same description. If I remember right the brand was Sugar N' Cream. I used this yarn to make my fake dreads. It was VERY fragrant when I crocheted with it and continued to be fragrant for a week as I carried it around and worked with it. It had a much more mellow scent as I put it into my hair. By the end of the five or so days it was in my hair the smell had gone away.

Wouldn't fabreze or fabric softener just as effective? Just spray it or store with fabric softener sheets.
