JoAnn Fabric and Craft Store

I've started getting back into knitting after a long hiatus. And I recently found some fantastic Bernat blanket yarn at JoAnn Fabric and Craft store. While that's no longer available, there is a new offer for Lion Brand yarn where you can save 30% on the entire stock. The only catch is that today is the last day to take advantage of it.

This deal includes a variety of yarn colors, and the majority of the yarn is acrylic, with some good wool and fleece skeins thrown in for good measure. I've found that some knitters loathe acrylic yarn because it lacks the softness of natural fibers. However, this yarn is ideal for beginners since it's more affordable, and good for practicing your technique before you move on to higher-quality yarn. There are about 34 yarn options to choose from, and in some cases, you can get three skeins for the price of one.
