I am in desperate need of Lion Brand Chenille Solid (Lion Brand) yarn in Forest Green #131. I can't find it anywhere. Did they stop manufacturing it? Is there a similar chenille yarn of this medium weight? I don't want "Thick & Quick" as it is too bulky. All of my baby watermelon hats are made with this yarn, so I am very disappointed I can't find this thin velvety yarn!

So sorry to be the bearer of bad news! But according to their website, it's been discontinued! Ebay, perhaps?. . .

Red Heart Plush might work. It's a thin plush about the weight of a thickish worsted.

I have had some luck getting discontinued colors directly from Lion Brand - just call their 1-800 # and reference the color straight from the label and sometimes they can find a few in the warehouse - just depends on how long ago it was discontinued. I know all of it is 50% right now at my Michael's. I have done this with Homespun for prayer shawls when I had a couple skeins and needed one more.
best of luck
