Breaking news.

Here are the new Cotton Ease colors!

I am thrilled that Lion Brand came to their senses and brought back this yarn, but I was hoping for better colors.  This is a good start and I hope they build on this initial color palette.  

Some of the old Cotton Ease colors were a bit garish for my taste, but I am sorry to see that they did not bring back the Bubble Gum pink and Sugarplum purple.

I love that Berry color, though.

  1. I’m not thrilled with the colors either – they’re all sort of faded looking. I hope they add more!

  2. CHUNKY ! I want the LB Chunky USA back!
    This is another discontinued item that I discovered, like, the year before they gave it the ax! I made a really nice crocheted scarf with all different colored yarns and the stripes ran horizontally. Beautiful.

  3. Oh… I hadn’t even stopped to realize that they didn’t bring back Sugarplum. If they would, I would buy oodles of it. It just happens to be an exact match for my very favoritist color ever.

  4. Yay! Now I will be able to try it! :) I like the colours.

  5. I love muted colors, so these look great to me for my taste.

  6. Yay! That acrylic cotton goodness is back! You’re right about the colors, though, they’re not very exciting. I did like cotton-ease because it didn’t pill as fast as other acrylic-cotton blends, and it was fairly cheap. I should get some and give it another try.

  7. The choice of colors is enticing.
