Can someone tell me where to find Peaches and Cream yarn?
I think it is a Wal Mart brand.
I have always bought it from their website. http://www.elmore-pisgah.com/
The Pisgah website has also just started a 50% off article 930 and 930p promotion. 930 is now just $0.99
Walmart has limited colors of it. I’d go with the website another poster listed. The shipping costs are worth it when you figure in what it’s going to cost you to drive to Walmart, fight the crowds, and wait in the checkout line. Don’t make the mistake of buying it by the cone from this website, though. I didn’t realize how much was on one. I’ll be knitting dishcloths for the next ten years.
The brand was bought out by the same company that makes Sugar and cream, though you can still buy it at the elmore-pisgah site, on ebay and from ravelry members. I believe Spinrite will still carry the brand, just repackaged.
I have found this yarn at Michael’s—also similar yarn called sugar and cream.
Spinrite is packaging P&C with a new label, but at the P&C forum at Ravelry, I’ve learned that they’re just repackging S&C and calling it P&C. It’s not as soft as it was under Pisgah.
Some folks are still ordering the old P&C at the Pisgah website, and they’re getting the last of the old stock.
The correct URL for Peaches & Creme yarn is now:
Pisgah Yarn and Dyeing was sold to Lily months ago. I did find some new Peaches & Creme yarn in Walmart recently. The label indicated that it was made in Canada.
Have you tried Cotton 8 instead of Peaches and Cream? Cotton 8 is softer and lightweight. Great for dishcloths, placemat, bedspreads etc. I have big cones of red, navy blue, black and spearmint that I spin into one lb. packages and sell.
I bought Peaches & Creme at Wal-Mart recently. The company that makes this yarn has went out of business as of Feb. 2011. They have a 50% off sale on their sight until July 10.
The company didn’t go out of business, they’re still making other yarns. But they sold the PnC line to the company that makes Sugar and Cream.
Yes these are big but seems to me they made about 8 dishcloths the time I went through a whole cone. I also make hair scrunchies, burp cloths, bibs, pacifier leashes, and potholders out of them
It is not a Walmart brand and never was, to make such a statement is to do everyone who relies on this site a disservice. It was a long standing company much older than Walmart and was bought out by Spinrite when the last of the family owned company passed away. The only reason they bought it was to keep the long standing brand alive, unfortunately the name did not go with the purchase and the name was changed to sugar and creme, the same quality. weight and texture have been maintained despite the changes.
Please be kind. The original poster of this comment only said she thought it was Walmart. It was not a personal affront to the company or Walmart or a disservice to members.
BTW this thread is very old.
