Looking for yarn, can you help?

A few years back my mom gave me a bunch of yarn that she no longer wanted.  It was a fat chunky 100% cotton yarn, like a heavier version of the kind you make dishcloths with.  I'm pretty sure she got it on clearance at Walmart, but I forgot to save a label, so I don't know the brand.  I have used it all up in a rug, a bath mat, and a dish drying mat(which we use daily and I love). I want to make some more(maybe to sell or for gifts, but I need to find the yarn).  
Here is a pic of the rug I made while it was in progress....
 And here is the bath mat...

Has anyone seen this yarn before?  Anywhere on line sell it? And do you know what weight it would be? It's not the normal 4 that cotton dishcloth yarn is, like I said, it is very chunky(works up quick).  I've looked everywhere, including Hobby Lobby(which I supported today!).




  1. it looks like what is called Sugar and Cream. you can get it @ joann's ,Michaels and Hobby Lobby. denise

  2. No, not sugar and cream, it's much thicker than that(like three strands worth).

  3. or perhaps, Jeannee Chunky yarn?

  4. Well it's a great rug for sure...looks like it will be very absorbant.
    Hope you can find it.

  5. It looks like the peaches n cream stuff I have, thick and soft too. Now if I could only locate all my crochet and knitting needles I would be good to go.

  6. Sorry I can't help you ~ hope you find it!
    maybe try a shop that specializes in yarn.

  7. Have you taken it with you to the stores that sell yarn? The cotton dish rag yarn is available at several of the bigger stores here...Joann's, Michaels, Hobby Lovby. Good luck!

  8. I've made dish cloths out of Aunt Lydia's cotton rug yarn and it works great. Another option is butchers twine. It's 100% cotton and it's cheep.
