Please bring it back!

This is the best bulky yarn I have worked with. The multi-ply makes it so it doesn’t pill, and it has a wonderful texture. I made my daughter a blanket almost 7 years ago that became her “lovey thing”. Wash after wash it still looks new. I’ve haven’t been able to find a suitable replacement. Please please please bring it back.

So, so sad it's discontinued

I made a multicolored scarf with this and different yarns for my nephew, all wool or wool blends. Of all of them this was my favorite, an absolute joy to work with, soft on the hands, springy, yummy texture with a smooth finish, had the most beautiful results with this over the others, also the colors were vibrant, no white bits of wool scattered throughout like most wool yarns. Later I bought Wool-ease, thinking it was the same yarn, not even close. Wool-ease is just like hundreds of other not so great yarns, spun in traditional manner with absolutely no give to the yarn whatsoever, scratchy and full of those lil white bits of undyed wool. Like I said so sad. I've never understood why a company will discontinue an awesome product and make another that falls seriously short and say they're almost identical. I'd get on marketing's case if the reason was lack of sales or sell at a slightly higher price if manufacturing became more expensive. Though I don't think it's the last because I did find other yarns here spun the same, but I think they were cotton and I'm looking to make my husband a sweater because he's cold all the time.

Love this wool

Made an Afghan for my daughter and it's so beautiful. I wish I could get more!! The Wool-Ease is, I assume, my next best option(?) but I miss the variegated colors of Pride.
I can send a pic. if you would like to see it.
