Winter is coming and Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® is the perfect yarn for colder weather. It’s a super bulky version of Wool-Ease® and it has the feel, warmth and softness of wool, with the easy care of acrylic – it’s also perfect for those who are normally allergic to real wool!
This is a great yarn to use when you’re learning how to knit: it works up quickly and easily for projects like sweaters, jackets, vests, slippers, hats, and, of course, scarves.
AND For the entire month of November, Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® is 20% off the original price!

You can tell a lot by the popularity of our patterns – it’s like palm reading (or pattern reading, in this case). With the weather getting colder we’ve noticed people are leaning towards heavier cover-ups like the Glamour Jacket and the Simple Shrug. The garments are made with our loftier yarns: Heartland Thick & Quick®, Homespun®, and Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®. One of our new yarns, Lion’s Pride® Woolspun® (exclusively sold at Micheals and Lion Brand) was a big hit – the Level 1 Crocheted Cardigan was our most popular project!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women and men worldwide — in 2012, it represented about 12 percent of all new cancer cases and 25 percent of all cancers in women — so almost all of you are affected by breast cancer either directly or through someone you care about.
Throughout the month of October, Lion Brand Yarn Company will donate 20% of the purchase price of a selection of pink yarns (see below) and our Knit for Life and Crochet for a Cause Kits to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®, while supplies last. BCRF’s mission is to advance the world’s most promising research to eradicate breast cancer in our lifetime. For more information about BCRF, please visit bcrfcure.org.
