Lovely yarn, hate that the composition has changed

Ordered 2 extra skeins required to finish a sweater and did not realize (because it's not indicated anywhere by Lion Brand) that the composition of this yarn has completely changed :( to say I'm disappointed is an extreme understatement. I have always trusted Lion Brand for their consistency but now I have hours and money invested into a sweater I love but cannot finish. Totally bummed!! Buyer beware!

Hello Lisa - our apologies that the new yarn received won't work to finish your project! We don't keep old dye lots in our warehouse so we suggest looking on eBay, Etsy, or Ravelry for matching yarn to finish your sweater.

So soft alpaca

I’ve been buying alpaca yarn from different vendors and I just love this lion brand alpaca yarn. I started a sweater and then ran out. Make sure to always buy a little extra. Been waiting forever to get the gray color. Finally I can finish this Sweater just in time for the cool air of Fall.

so soft and fluffy

I am so glad I found this yarn - thanks to a crochet sweater kit I ordered. It is so soft and fluffy, easy and enjoyable to work with. I will probably return to this yarn in different colors for future crochet projects.

Love love love the Lion Brand Chainette yarn!

This yarn is excellent! I will definitely use it for another project! I did have to order it online though. Not available at the local stores.

So soft

I’ve been wanting to try this yarn but it is never available at my local Joann’s. I ordered the Balance Shawl kit and received three skeins and pattern. The yarn is soft, squishy and not itchy. It was easy on my hands to crochet with. The yarn retained the bounce factor after frogging a good portion and immediately reusing. The heathered blue denim color is beautiful. My shawl came out great and blocked with no issues. I will be ordering more in the future for a knitted sweater.
