Introducing Paintbox Toasty: Scent-sational Peanut Butter, Marmite & Vegemite yarnsPublished on 1 April 2020 By Holly Butteriss 2 min read
Love it or hate it, Paintbox has released a new and exclusive range of scented cotton yarns - Paintbox Toasty. So how does it work exactly? This collection is a 100% cotton DK range, which means it soaks up those lovely scents with ease, releasing the smells as you knit or crochet and lasting up to 3 washes!
Our allergy-safe scents are sprayed on as the cotton fibres are carded and spun, in a special formula that contains microscopic scent beads. As you knit or crochet, the beads expand and release their scent with the warmth of your hands. These delicious slow release fragrances are family favourites, perfect for little projects to make you smile! We’re thinking mouthwatering Marmite scented homewares, peanut butter scarves and Vegemite toasty toes socks. Get creative with this incredible new range of scented yarns!
Whether you spread Peanut Butter, Marmite or Vegemite on your toast, there’s no denying it’s one of life’s simplest pleasures.
“Around the world we’re united by our love of toast,” says Megan Lynam, Yarn Buyer at LoveCrafts. “When we thought about novel products for 2020, it seemed sensible to just follow our noses. Whether you spread Peanut Butter, Marmite or Vegemite on your toast, there’s no denying it’s one of life’s simplest pleasures. Sampling the new yarns in production, wow that’s been a nutty job! I’m an Aussie, who’s spent many years living in England, so it was really important for me that we got the distinction between the marmite and vegemite scents spot on. We sent samples to over 100 of our Australian and British makers for a “Sniff Test”, to make sure we got it just right. Love it or hate it? Well my verdict is: Love it.”
