This thread has a lot of info on which Targets carry which yarns, and which Targets don't have any. Maybe there's one kinda close by that has it for you!

I'm a little late in the game here, but only recently picked up some of this yarn. My local Target was out, but another one had it. All of the boucle was unfortunately gone, but I picked up some acrylic and fun fur (the mohair-ish stuff). I have never used fun fur before, so this was an experience.

For these 2 crocheted projects, I used one strand of pink acrylic with one strand of multi-colored mohair. You guys are right - that stuff is totally unforgiving. I crochet fairly tightly and forget about frogging at all. I also had trouble finding the beginning of the yarn on one ball and had to cut off a big tangle to start. Otherwise I like the result with the 2 strands together.

This scarf is simply single crochet worked in the back loop.

This is the Caron yarns free ruffle scarf pattern (adjusted for different gauge). It's not finished yet - I think I have 2 rows left. Looks kind of like a tape worm!

The scarves look small because they are for my 2 and 6 yr. olds.

Oops! You know, I was reading this thread from the recent unread posts function and didn't realize I was posting to the knitting forum. Forgive the crochet intrusion and please move the post to crochet if necessary!

The scarves are so pretty!  I really like the look of the ruffled scarf.  Nice work!

You know, that target fun fur is working up into a pretty nice Branching Out Smiley

SO it seems like the best idea for the super soft mohair type yarn is to pair it with another yarn and knit, use it on large bamboo needles, or just cuddle the little balls and mutter insainely about how soft my new chubbles are?

I got three each of the grey and soft lavender/grey/tan-ish and I want something super luxirious from it.
