    Well, drat! Try copy/pasting that URL on the webaddress line, friend.

    Also, try www.discontinuedbrandnameyarn.com/shop/
    This online store buys stock from yarn stores that are closing as well as stock of discontinued yarn from manufacturers.

    You can often get even better deals if you buy the yarn by the bag, which is great if you need a lot of yarn for a project. And if you're just looking for good deals on yarn and don't care what you get, this site's grab bags are a lot of fun.

    ETSY DE-STASH SITE

    Of course when looking for a discontinued yarn it's highly unlikely you'll be able to find the same dye lot you were working with; you might not even be able to find the same color. In the case of different dye lots, alternating rounds or pairs of rows from two different dye lots will make the difference less noticeable.

    It says red/white/green but it looks orange white and green! I guess it's a bad pic. Maybe this is it?

    Yeah that's the bad thing. I found that when I was looking for Red Heart in Bronze color. It was there if I wanted to spend $$$$$. I ended up finding Bronze in Bernat yarn and used that instead. I checked every craft store around and found that ACMoore has the best color selection for yarn. Maybe you can look in different craft stores and take along the yarn you have and try to match it as closely as you can. Mine was a new project so I wasn't worried about color matching. Good Luck! I hope you find something that works out for you.
