I don't think so. The best stuff they sell is Lion Brand yarns. I don't think Lion has a merino yet. :thinking: They have a lot of various red heart stuff...caron...LOTS of fun fur....etc.

This week they have their Sugar & Cream, Coats Super Saver, Yarn Bee, and Lion Homespun on sale (you can see that on their website) They also have all of their needlework totes on sale.

(As well as the 40% off coupon that they have pretty regularly that is only available on the website.)

I think some Hobby Lobbys sell Patons Marino wool. If they don't I know Joanns does.

Nope, no merino there. Lion Wool and wool ease, some of the Yarn Bee is wool, but it's pretty rough. Caron's Felt It wool is pretty, but definitely for felting, not for making something wearable.

I'm sorry. It's merino. I just misspelled it. You might be able to find it at Micheals, or Joanns.

My HL only has a few Paton's yarns, mostly fuzzy, furry or glitzy. No Classic merino or SWS - the good yarns. Not even Candiana, Rumour or Shetland Chunky.

My Hobby Lobby doesn't carry Patons Classic Merino Wool, but my Joann's carries a small selection, and Michael's has the biggest selection of Patons Classic Merino wool.

I've never seen any Yarn Bee in wool. Can you tell me the category name they use for it? If they don't have it in the stores, I'd like to look into ordering some.

Look at their catalog site, along the left side for yarn names - http://www.craftsetc.com/Store/ShowC...d=20&c=62&s=-1

They also sell these yarns in their stores, though I was sure there were more than two yarns containing wool, the Artistry and Mosaic Twist.
