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!
