Lion Brand Cotton-Ease imageFor all of you Cotton-Ease afficionados (and for those who are NOT on a yarn diet), Lion Brand just announced the return of your favorite yarn!

It’s cheaper than some of the high-end substitutes (Rowan, for instance) and more substantial than a similar TLC cotton / poly blend. There are some mighty fine new colors, too.

Be the arbiter of your own yarn-buying conscience. My enabling work here is done.

(And no. I don’t work for Lion Brand.)

  • Ah, I wondered when they were going to update their website……more colors that I thought! Thanks for the linkage!

  • I missed out on CottonEase in it’s first incarnation but now I’ll have to wait to 2008! That’s ok tho, I’m a terrible yarn snob and a Rowanette so I’ll have to stick to the All Season’s Cotton in the stash 🙂

  • hey there! i’m trying SO hard to use up my exisiting CE stash before i buy more.

  • Sprechen sie Deutsch, mein freund? Fergissen sie mir, mein Deutsch is sehr rustig.

    What have you made with this Cotton Ease, I am not familiar with this yarn?

  • Oh, Karen, I have had Classic Elite, Classic Silk in the cart to purchase 100 times, but haven’t pushed the button…Is this a substitute? I know it doesn’t have silk, but I want something nice, yet on the thinner side (I have my own fluff) for a v-neck tunic style sweater, this has just caught my interest. Perhaps I shall order a ball or so to knit with it….

  • I have got to try some of that. I’ve tried Brown Sheep’s Cotton Fleece, but it hurt my hands. So I’m hoping the Cotton Ease is gentler.

  • Fabulous! A friend just gave me the latest Lion Brand catalog and they also have an organic cotton now!
