Big W really is rolling back prices!

I know acrylic yarn isn't everybody's cup of tea but credit where credit's due:

Big W (in Penrith at least) has rolled back the price of Carnival Acrylic 100g balls. Earlier this year they rose from $2.97 to $3.19 (an increase of approx 7%) - yesterday they were rolled back to $2.68! That's 16% - or 29 cents less than this time last year!

The Carnival Effects range - Fair Isle, Stripes and Camouflage - continues to be $2.97 per 100g.

As far as acrylic yarn goes, the Carnival range is quite nice to knit with - some colours knit up very softly.

So let me explain - this is not this week's special - this is the new, lower price! Big W really does roll back the prices! Thanks Big W, you've made me one happy customer!


  1. Hi Lynne,
    Kmart have some specials as well. Lorelle

  2. We recently had a load of acrylics at Lidl at an amazingly low price of £2.99 for 400g. had I not been stashalonging, I'd have snaped them up.
