About La Capitaine Crochète

After my studies in biomedical sciences, I became a stay-at-home mom. In 2012, pregnant with my second boy, I saw adorable animal-themed hats on the internet. I already knew how to knit, but I learned to crochet to make these pretty hats for my kids.

I eventually got the idea of starting a small business to devote myself to my favourite hobby and make a little money doing so. The La Capitaine Crochète adventure began in February 2013. That year, I crocheted dozens of owl hats.

I later discovered reusable scouring pads made with nylon net. I really liked this product and started bringing some with me to craft markets, not imagining that in August 2016 my company would make a complete turnaround. A friend posted about her scouring pad purchase in a Facebook group. That day and the next, I sold 31 scouring pads. 8 months later, I had sold 1,000.

Little by little, I started offering a wider variety of colours and shapes. I eventually added reusable exfoliating sponges. Then in 2018, I launched a successful crowdfunding campaign for my new DIY kits. It is now possible for anyone who knows how to crochet to make scouring pads with my original patterns and the same durable nylon net I use.

My beautiful business keeps growing. That’s why I am now surrounded by a team of wonderful women who help me crochet the hundreds of scouring pads and exfoliating sponges sold every year in my online store, at craft markets and in stores.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting my company. I look forward to crocheting reusable scouring pads and exfoliating sponges that you soon won’t imagine ever doing without!

Care instructions

After use, wring excess water out and hang to dry. To wash your scouring pad, you can put it in the dishwasher’s highest tray. You can also soak it in hot water with baking soda added or put it in the washing machine in a laundry net (do not put it in the dryer). Caution: excess dye may be released during the first washes and uses, particularly for red and purple.

Machine wash in a laundry net. Hang to dry. These exfoliating sponges do not go in the dryer. They are quite an interesting and lasting alternative to the fragile commercial poufs.
