Get thee to a Michaels! There are some gorgeous new Lion Brand Yarns there that aren't to be missed! (And I'm working with Lion Brand to show them off here on Moogly!)

So just a few days ago I was in my local Michaels in Davenport Iowa, and I spotted a special display of Lion Brand Yarns featuring some very exciting GIANT balls of yarn: Touch of Alpaca Bonus Bundles, Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Bonus Bundles, and Thick & Quick Bonus Bundles! Lion Brand Bonus Bundles are just ideal for one skein projects - and who doesn't love a LOT of yarn?!
I love big balls of yarn and I cannot lie. Also, if you live in Iowa and heard a rumor about a slightly excited lady taking photos in the yarn aisle... that was me. Probably.
Wool-Ease Thick & Quick has been one of my favorite yarns for years, and last year I snagged a Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Bonus Bundle to design my Celebration Wine Bag. If you follow my designs, you know I do love one skein projects!
This year the Bonus Bundles are back, with some gorgeous colorways - 12 in all. The display near me had clearly been very popular, but there were still lots of balls to choose from!
One colorway that had sold out at my store that day was City Lights - I have a brand new pattern using this one, so keep an eye out for it at your own local Michaels! It's so pretty! They will be restocking and shipping more yarn too - so be sure to keep checking back if you like to shop in person (or order now at Michaels.com or LionBrand.com of course!).
But there are even more unique colorways too - these two really caught my eye! In total there are 7 new Bonus Bundle colorways this year - City Lights, Petrol Blue, Spice Market, Bedrock, Urban Camo, Slate, and Cranberry.
One of the yarns I've only recently been introduced to is Lion Brand Touch of Alpaca - so I loved seeing Touch of Alpaca Bonus Bundles! This yarn is so warm and fuzzy, I just love the texture!
I've never seen such big balls of alpaca yarn - this is a real find! (And I'll have a pattern using this gorgeous stuff next week.)
If you haven't had a chance to check out Touch of Alpaca yet in person, then definitely head to Michaels ASAP - and experience the yum in person! They have 12 gorgeous colors in stock to choose from!
The other side of the display featured Thick & Quick Bonus Bundles! Thick & Quick is another new Lion Brand Yarn - currently only available in Bonus Bundle size. Also very popular, judging by the display! Good thing they're getting more!
Thick & Quick is such a great addition to the Lion Brand line - very similar in looks and feel to Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick, but 100% acrylic. Perfect for those who love the look of the Wool-Ease version but prefer to avoid wool! (And there might be an upcoming Moogly pattern with that one too!) Currently, it's available in 8 colors.
Every trip to Michaels is exciting (and a little dangerous) - I never know what will hop in my cart! Both Touch of Alpaca Bonus Bundle and Thick & Quick Bonus Bundle yarns will be available exclusively at Michaels and Lion Brand through April 6, 2018 - so grab them while you can!
All of these yarns can be found at 840 Michaels stores across the country, so stop into yours to see what's available near you. If you don't have a Michaels near you, you can check out each of these yarns online at Michaels.com and LionBrand.com.
Oh, and I spotted this on the display too - so fun! See you at Michaels!
