Lion Brand yarn
They just came out with cashmere, 2 kidmohair/silk blends.

Sorry if this has been posted before, i didn't see a post about it.

I'm curious to try these :)

did you check the prices and yardage? yeah we have discussed it and discarded

humblestumble 11-21-2006 05:03 PM

lol, really? No... I didnt even check the prices. I am trying to find a site that sells them. If they sell it in town, I'd like to go feel them at least. I don't like the LYS here, and I can't feel the yarn in knitpicks haha.

brendajos 11-21-2006 05:06 PM

yeah they used to have the prices on the site...i can't see it now. it was something like $40 i believe.

humblestumble 11-21-2006 05:07 PM

Oh my god! That's ridiculous, haha... never mind that I said anything...

brendajos 11-21-2006 05:12 PM

yeah when people were talking about the price originally i figured it was going to be $15-ish ....... :teehee:

I believe the cashmere was $35 and that the other two were $45. Way too much especially when theres Elan and Knit Picks.

Odd.....I can't find the pricing anywhere where it used to be. Maybe they are rethinking their price schedule to a more reasonable amount. Either that or I am missing it somewhere on their site.

Maybe they took it off because people were really being put off by it. With those prices, I don't expect it to last very long.

I was expecting around 10-15 bucks too.

Yeah, they're more expensive than Rowan, for crying out loud! Honestly!
