I was in JoAnn Fabrics the other day because I needed buttons for my kelly green cardi and point protectors for my needles. I walked through the yarn department and noticed their selections had expanded greatly. Still all acrylic blends but a larger selection. As I looked as some of the yarns I noticed ones that appeared to be handspun. At this moment I felt a little sad. There are people who spend years learning to perfect the art of spinning, countless hours spinning those yarns, and unmeasureable amounts of labor the create the high quality beautiful yarns they produce and BLAMO!!! as super huge chain store has managed to create a lesser quality look alike at a fraction of the price and will likely make spinning for profit a futile process. It is so sad when major chains put small business out of business. So sad.
