Hi I'm new here & am in need of some assistance. I have a yarn that I found on sale a few years ago at Joann's that I fell in love with as a trimming yarn. Unfortunately, it was apparently on sale because it was being discontinued. It is Sensations' Confetti. From what I've found from my internet searching, there's none to be found. However, someone with a similar problem said that Michael's was selling Paton's Pooch which is essentially the same. Problem with that is that it is now discontinued too.

From what I can see there are a few places where I can purchase the Pooch online so I may do that & I found that Paton's says that their Bohemian is the replacement for the Pooch, but I can't find a picture anywhere showing what it looks like off of the skein to see if it really is similar enough.

So my questions to all you lovely fellow Craftsters out there is, does anyone know where I can find either of these yarns or a good replacement?

I'd appreciate any help with this you can provide. I've started a business selling my crafts online & have loved the yarn as a trim on scarves in the past & thought it would look great on hats & other things too, but can't find it. Sad Thanks in advance.

You can check on ebay to see if anyone has some for sale, and join Ravelry (www.ravelry.com) and check yarn stashes to see if someone is willing to sell or trade it.

Thanks.
I did find some Paton's Pooch on ebay & I did also post this question on Raverly. Thanks for the suggestions.
