Patons Classic Merino
Is this being discontinued? They seem to be sold out everywhere. I love this stuff, I would be so upset.

I just bought 2 skeins at Michael's last week and also saw tons of it at Ben Franklin.

I'd never used it before, but travelled into the felting world for the first time and this as recommended for my project.

(Which turned out great, BTW).

Hmm. Maybe they were just sold out from all the holiday gift knitting. Thanks for the replies.

It's been on sale, they're probaby just out of stock for the moment. I'd bet it's probably one of Paton's best selling yarns so they wouldn't be discontinuing it.

Yeah, I seriously doubt they are discontinuing it. It's a popular felting yarn.

Both JoAnnes and Michaels had it on sale the week before Thanksgiving. Chances are good that they just haven't gotten it restocked.

Where I work, we are switching over to Patons and Bernat from RHSS (Hooray! cause that means I get Patons for 20% off all the time!), so I'm going to guess they aren't discontinuing it.

Joanns had it on sale for 2 for $6 over the weekend.
Their website said that they are completely sold out.
