Holiday Verigated Yarn On The Internet

Updated on November 27, 2013

Holiday yarn

This past year much to my surprise I ran out of my red, green and white varigated yarn. You know the one I'm talking about, the one that is so useful for all of your Holiday crafts. At first I thought it was no big deal. I mean, I can get that at any craft store. They even have it at Wal-Mart. Silly me, I thought I would be able to easily find this yarn and stock up again. Well, let me be the first to tell you, It's not as easy as I thought it would be. For some reason the variegated yarn in red, white and green has become quite scarce.

At first I panicked, what was I going to do? When I finally settled down, I began to look for replacements for this suddenly hard-to-find must-have-for-my-projects yarn. I managed to find one source for my old stand-by yarn (yes, it's still my favorite for holiday projects) and a few for some new wonderful replacement yarns.

I hope my search will help any of you out there that have found themselves in the same boat as I did. Sitting there with my crochet hook without a skein to use.

If you are like me and you make holiday items all year long you know that it's never too early to get started.
