Hello my fellow yarn-craftin’ folks,
It’s the very first Monday of the new year 2015 and I found myself caught up checking out on-sale yarns. Being that it’s a new year and considering that most of the most popular yarn and craft suppliers didn’t exactly have to-die-for sales on yarn on New Year’s, I figured there must be a good sale coming soon. As I was checking my e-mail, I had one from Lion Brand and sure enough! They’re doing a sale on some select yarns, one of those being the “Amazing Yarn 3-skein value pack” which is 75% off the original price right now:
I can’t honestly say that I’m really digging any of the yarns I’m seeing on sale, and that unfortunately includes the Amazing Yarn. At 75% off, I have to admit, I was tempted, but just can’t find anything I truly love about the colors there, so I thought it better to just back away and wait for a color I actually want or need to go on sale. However, I did think of you guys, so the sale inspired me to share for folks who might happen to like the yarn.
They also have a 3-skein value pack for the Baby’s First Yarn listed for 50% off, and the two colors featured on their front sales page are beautiful. — “Sea Sprite,” which is a mist or mint green, and a peach color called “Twinkle Toes.” Both colors I really love.
Baby Soft Yarn, in a 6-skein value pack is also 75% off
The “Lemon Drop” is a pretty bold, sunshine-y color! I actually like this shade of yellow, and I typically have a very hard time finding yellows and oranges that I think are pretty.
Bellini Yarn, in 3-skein value packs are 75% off too.
Can’t say I’m loving the Bellini line yet either, but I’m pretty excited to see Lion Brand doing a nice sale! Perhaps they’re getting ready for new selections! I’m so ready for new yarn choices right now.
A 3-skein value pack of Cotton Ease is 75% off, but the colors I saw available — greens — were not to my liking, although I have been hoping to pick up some from the Cotton Ease line at some point.
Now the Da Vinci yarn in Oceania, which is also a 3-skein value pack that’s 50% off did catch my eye. I am very fond of those beautiful color combos. I could see some very artsy creations being made from a skein of the colors they had available. My favorite from this line is “Oceania,” the green/blue color combo skein shown below:
They also have a gradient gray/black colored skein.
Festive Fur is also featured on the sales page, in multiple colors and for 75% a 3-skein value pack.
Joann does have Lion Brand’s “Fun” yarn on sale for $1.57
right now, which isn’t half off its usual price of $2.09.
The pink color is gorgeous, but I never buy this yarn because it doesn’t come with much (only 85 yards.)
Caron Natura Acrylic yarn is $1.72 on Joann right now, where it’s usually priced at $2.29.
It appears Lion Brand yarn is marked down on various other shopping sites, including some on Joann. There are several other small-ish yarns marked down a bit on Joann at the moment. Go here to see them all.
As far as ordering off Joann via the internet, I never do that unless I can get free shipping because their shipping fee (comes in around $6 for me) normally is just way too much when you consider your purchase being just a roll or two of yarn. That’s an instant $6 per skein/roll whereas if you went in-store, you’d save that & still be likely to find it marked down.
To shop their entire clearance page yourself here’s the link I found them on. Unfortunately, I’ve yet to get any emails notifying me of any other companies or manufacturers with nice sales today, but perhaps Joann and other companies will jump on the sale wagon soon!
