I was beyond excited when Red Heart sent me new summer yarn to review and create with! This time is was their new Scrubby Sparkle Yarn in Grape!
You can find the Scrubby Sparkle yarn HERE.
So many ideas came to mind on what to make with this yarn. It’s truly one of a kind. Not only in texture but appearance. It was easy to work with and down right fun! After feeling it out for a little while I came up with the idea to make an exfoliating pad with a salt scrub recipe I’ve used for years!
Exfoliating Spa Scrubby and Salt Scrub recipe.
