Does anyone know where I can find Lion Brand yarn (specifically the Landscapes, Watercolors, and Mystery lines) in Alberta?  Can anyone recommend an online store that carries these that will ship to Canada for a good price?

I've checked Wal-mart, Michaels, Lewiscraft, and Zellers... and that's pretty much every store that sells yarn here.  No luck so far.

I desperately want this yarn!!

Thanks - Mandy

That really surprises me, but then, it probably shouldn't.  At Walmart here in the states, or at least in my area, Lion Brand and Red Heart are ALMOST the only brands they sell.  Some varieties of Bernat, Caron and Coats and Clark are in evidence, but of the one aisle of yarn they have, fully 1/2 of it is Lion Brand.

Anyway, Lion Brand sells yarn directly from their website, and it appears that they ship to Canada, since the territories are listed at the bottom of the "State" menu in the shipping section of their check-out.

I'm in Alberta too (Calgary) and have been noticing that Lionbrand is vanishing from stores here.  Michaels used to carry a lot of Lionbrand but it seems that they are getting out of it (and into fun fur and only fun fur it would appear).  Walmart carries a couple of their lines, but not any of the yarns I would want to use (landscapes, woolease etc).  I wrote to Lionbrand and Michaels to ask about why they were decreasing their stock but didn't ever hear anything back.

Lionbrand's prices on their website are higher than they are in stores for some reason.  When you add on the shipping to Canada it would be a bit much. 

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Do you have Joann's stores in Canada? If not, they carry Lionbrand on their website, http://joann.com/catalog.jhtml;$sessionid$3BQP5EYAACMU0P4SY5NBJAR50LD3OEPO?CATID=82241

Hobby Lobby carries it too, not sure if that yarn is available online or not.


it's always you in my big dreams
