We introduce products throughout the year on LionBrand.com, but you may not see some of these products in your local stores until the stores change over their shelves.

To make sure you don’t miss a thing, we’re recapping a couple of new favorites that you’ll want to look for in your local stores right now!

Imagine

Imagine airy, voluminous projects! This versatile yarn is constructed as a net-like tube that you can knit or crochet OR open up and turn into a no-knit/crochet project. Make a two-stitch scarf with just one skein. Pick it up in-stores today.

Fettuccini®

Every colorway is a limited edition with this cool super-bulky yarn! Made with remnants from fashion manufacturing, this fabric-based yarn is strong enough for bags and bowls, but soft enough for accessories. (The two-cone cowl is hugely popular among our staff right now!)

Stop by your local store and pick up your favorite prints whenever you see them–you may not see them ever again!
