Moda Vera Yarns - Spotlight

So everyone should know by now I'm making a granny stripe blanket. If you didn't then where have you been? A photo is usually in most of my posts. Look at the bottom of this one for more photos :D

But, what you may not realise is what yarn I'm using. I started it using 12 colours of Moda Vera Marvel 8ply Acrylic. I won't be able to finish it using moda vera 8ply though because when I went to spotlight last week just 'looking' at stuff. I found that there was a mix of moda vera and 4 seasons in the shelves both labelled marvel. I was very worried though it didn't click until the next day why I was so worried about seeing that yarn name change. So I contacted spotlight.

Here is their response:

Dear Caitlin, 

With regards to your specific enquiry, I have been informed by our buyers that this product has been re-branded. The new brand is 4 seasons. You will be safe to select colours that are branded 4 seasons for your project. With any yarn, the only thing we can not guarantee will be the dye lots which will be different.

So if there is anyone else out there who uses Moda Vera yarns in their projects I think they are re-branding all their yarns but I know it has started with marvel. At least the colours will remain the same for the foreseeable future but I think I need to get to spotlight as soon as possible and get some more just in case. I do want this to be a full sized blanket because I can, and hopefully a matching pillow too. 

I will leave you with pretty photos of my blanket. I had to go sit in the sun and take some nice photos though it's getting harder to photograph all the colours so far. 



 
It doesn't look like just twelve colours with them all mixed up. At least this way I'm not worried about dye lot at all.

Happy Stitching,
Caitlin

  2. I love how bright and happy this is - looks great! That's really annoying though about the re-branding. Hopefully it all works out.
