Aloe infused yarn?


I saw this worsted acrylic downtown that claimed to be good for hands
because of the aloe. It only came in 3 very basic colors, but I wonder if
there's anything to the aloe being there, or if it's a waste of time.
Anyone have opinions?

If my hands needed aloe lotion, I'd put aloe lotion on them and buy yarn that I liked.
I'd be careful who I gave an aloe-infused knitted object to, because some people are allergic to aloe. I'd feel that I would have to make a label "contains aloe" to warn unsuspecting guests, too.
Still, it probably washes out enough the first time for general use, unless the person is really sensitive.

I think that posting this question here, shows your are wondering about it already. I was thinking that it must be messy to knit with.....LOL.......Ha, ha.
Stay away from that kind of dumb marketing ploy. Like Tamar says, when you need cream for your hands you will go and buy it.....

True. But I tend to turn down lotions passed around in gatherings because I'm part of the "control group".

When you perform an experiment, usually you are adjusting one variable. This variable uses a control sample. The control group is the group you do nothing to.
Another example of this is the bumper sticker I saw at the University: DO NOT WASH. SCIENTIFIC DIRT EXPERIMENT.
Does it make more sense yet?

I know what a control group is - I went to public school! I don't see how aloe-enabled yarn or hand lotion has anything to do with you being in one.
Hence the "huh"?

It goes to the debate over whether there's any age-reducing powers in aloe. Or any lotion for that matter.

Heh, well, I've thought that's debatable for years. I know a couple of women my age who spend upwards of three hours a day greasing up various parts of their bodies, steaming same, then covering the visible portions with lots of cosmetics.
I use lotion on my hands when I need it.
Guess who gets carded? *lol*

My secret is vaseline, apply while under a hot shower and feel great all day. Now of course I also have to use a sun protection lotion, which is a real pain, or when I do not do it and forget, I end up getting patches removed with liquid nitrogen, no fun either.....hey guys getting old is not fun either...LOL

Many years ago I worked with some acrylic yarn like this and it was wonderful. When the store carrying it went out of business I never saw it again
