Thrift store yarn
Hi Everyone,

I always look at the craft aisle in my local thrift store for yarn or whatever.
I got lucky this last week and picked up 10 skeins of Reynolds Utopia in a dark blue for $12. At 225 yds to the skein I've got plenty to make a sweater.
I am not familiar with this brand. Has anyone used this yarn before?
I'm assuming someone bought it awhile ago intending to make something and then never did anything with it as I can't find this particular yarn in any of the sites I've checked.

I haven't used it but it sounds like it's still available, for example, here. And there is a page on Ravelry as well if you want to see projects and reviews.

I haven't used it myself, but I've never heard a bad word about Reynolds yarn!
As a matter of fact, I think of Reynolds as a high-end yarn. It certainly looks nice!

Thanks to Salmonmac for doing that yarn research for us, and providing the links!

Checked out the Webs site and underneath it says it's not available any longer. But as I said no worries as have plenty to make something with what I have.
