just FYI for anyone who might be looking . . . JoAnn's has an on-line yarn sale that includes Caron Craft & Rug Yarn, described as

"This 100% acrylic craft & rug yarn from Caron is the perfect replacement for Aunt Lydia's. While it has the durability of Aunt Lydia's, it has the softness of a 4-ply yarn for plush rugs and other crafting projects requiring a yarn that will withstand wear and tear."

25% off = $1.34 for 43yd
