I like Bernat's bamboo blend for face cloths. Recently Michael's had it on sale and has not had it since. Yesterday I went into JoAnn's with the idea that I would use my 40% off coupon for it. Their regular price is just under $5.00 for that tiny skein. I was very surprised to see there were only 3 skeins there and they were on clearance for $1.97....final sale.

I asked if that meant they were closing it out but of course the clerk didn't know for sure...she said sometimes they close out one kind and bring in another.

Anyone know anything about this?

I used a bamboo blend from Hobby Lobby once but it was an ugly color. That was quite awhile ago. I have no idea what is available now. I don't know if Walmart carries any bamboo blend.



Hey, sports fans, this just in......I went online to JoAnn's, typed in every city I had ever lived in and some I have not.....Bernat's bamboo blend was either "out of stock" or "unavailable" in every one. I tried to order it online (JoAnn's) and the search wouldn't even bring it up!

Do you suppose, once again, they have taken away a product we dearly love?

Why is that?

Oh my, I hope not. I love their bamboo blend. It is so soft. I have ordered it from Wal-Mart online.

Maybe Michaels and Joanns is discontinuing the yarn but you can buy it from Bernat's site - and they are showing new colors. Most yarn companies label their discontinued yarns so you know they are discontinued.

Yes, and I see other sites still have it. One site had one color for $3.88 but I thought shipping was high.

Does Hancock have it? The Hancock's here has very little yarn so I never ever think to go there.

RE: Bernat's Bamboo Blend
I use Lion Brand Baby's First for washcloths and they turn out beautiful and soft.
