Has anyone used scrubby yarn? Is it easy or hard to knit with? Just curious, because when I felt it in the store it felt a little stiff to knit with. Thanks!

I haven't worked with Red Heart Scrubby, but I agree with you, it feels like it might be challenging to work with. Scrubby is 100% polyester, which I don't like so much. Red Heart now has Scrubby Cotton, which is 100% cotton. I'd be willing to try that because I like cotton yarn.

It can be a little difficult to work with and if you choose the wrong needles, they are ruined by the time you're done. It takes some getting use to to work it and it completely ruins bamboo needles because of the sandpaper effect it has on them but everything you make with it turns out great.
