Disturbing it is.* Lion Brand's Cotton-Ease has been discontinued. While I have not used it yet, I have played with it and have plans to make this. From the blogs I have read and the people I have spoken to, this is probably Lion's most popular of the non-novelty yarns. Perhaps Lion Brand wants all their yarns to have fur in it. Or maybe it is part of a bigger picture and they are going to be releasing some really nice wool and cotton yarns that will rival Knit Picks and Elann. One can only hope.
So excuse me while I plan my route home to include a couple local Jo-Ann Fabrics stores and maybe a Michael's or two...I can't forget Hobby Lobby, either. This is going to take some logistics....**
