All of the bigger skeins are Wool Ease (I'm planning a blanket out of it).

There are two skeins of Lion Cotton, the purple & the blue.

The 6 multi colored ones on the right side are actually fiber strips, about 88yards each. They gave those to me for free!

Am I insane!? When I read "I made out with Hancock Fabricks", I was wondering "who HE was" and "why you were so happy you made out with HIM."

Score! :teehee:

I bought a new sewing machine, a cutting board, shears, six yards of NFL fleece, and four skeins of Lion pure wool. :mrgreen:
Two days later, I'm wishing I'd bought the Lion cashmere blend that I made out with publicly in the store and some of the cotton, too.

Check Joann, Michael's, Hobby Lobby and even WalMart for Lion Cotton. If you have a Meijer store near you, they may carry it as well.

Glad I'm not the only one. :rofl: I thought the same thing before I saw you posted it, figured I was a freak, and didn't say anything!

:teehee: No that is a picture of two characters from Battlestar Galatica. It's on the SciFi channel.

I kinda wondered what people would think about the topic after I posted it. I think it was one of those things where it sounded one way in my head and translated differently when written. :teehee:

Then you'll probably have to use Sugar and Cream or Peaches and Cream. They're essentially the same as Lion Cotton anyway. The skeins are smaller (2 or 2.5 oz) but they cost about half as much too.
