Yarn crafting with chronic dry skin


Recommended Posts

Anybody find any workarounds for crocheting or knitting with yarn if you have chronic dry skin issues? The dry skin is being treated as much as possible but is caused by chronic, incurable dehydration so that problem isn't going to be fixed. Gloves and fresh cream make the yarn stick.

I’ve bought special moisturizers for knitters off Etsy. They don’t leave your hands sticky. Working Hands cream might work too. It’s not sticky after it absorbs.  

This is one I have used: https://www.etsy.com/listing/571941213/unscented-hand-cream-for-knitters-happy?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=knitting+hand+lotion&ref=sr_gallery-1-1&organic_search_click=1&frs=1

Thanks! I will try it. I use Cera Ve right now which is a decent cream most of the time but I still have uncomfortably dry areas between my fingers when I use yarn.
