Bernat Boa Alternative Yarn
Does anyone know of a good alternative to Bernat Boa yarn - something that is feathery? Bernat Boa has been discontinued.

Thanks!

I think Lionbrand fun fur would work fine.

Every now and again, Boa, or something exactly like it pops up in the discount bulk bin at Walmart....

I was looking for purple and I found some on Amazon - it was pretty reasonable - $3.97 and shipping wasn't too bad.

Thanks again!
