yeah i couldn't find it either when it was very easy to find the other pricing info. i would guess they got complaints....considering they went from one of their products being $10 or so not so long ago to a big jump of $30+ i would expect that it met with a lot of protest from people who actually wrote letters as opposed to just laughing at it like I did.

You can find the prices at the online store. www.e-yarn.com
The cashmere stuff.
Seriously. Anyone with access to any kind of yarn store or the internet or ANYthing should know this is not a good deal. I wonder who they think they're going this stuff to?

i buy Paton's at Michael's all the time, but would NEVER pay $35, let alone $15 for a Lion Brand yarn. I might as well buy Artyarns or something else real yummy for my needles.

I shop at these places and I would not buy it. A lot of the people (not all, I am not saying all) that buy yarn at Michaels (myself included) do so because it's cheaper. I'm just thinking maybe putting it in a store like that isn't really going to reach people who want to pay $40 for 100 yards of yarn.

Let me rephrase that... people who don't buy yarn anywhere other than HL, Joann's or Michael's.... and don't know about internet yarn buying.
