I have a bunch of mill end bags and I am having a heck of a time figuring out what yarns they are. I am usually good at finding them eventually but these guys are very difficult to figure out. I'm hoping someone can help me. I have posted the link to each of them on my ravelry page. Please help!!

Thanks. I know about the group on Ravelry, I have posted all of these and have gotten no where with them. So I thought I might see if I could find other people who might know.

Hi, I know this is a bit old, but have you had any luck with any of the yarns? Some of them rang distant bells, LOL and in looking at Hobby Lobby I believe some of them could be from there.



The link is to my search for 'rainbow' under yarns. In case it doesn't go to the page cleanly, I went under yarns by brand, and then down the left I searched for 'rainbow' in the color area.  The rainbow in your pictures reminds me of HL I Love This Yarn; the twist and the skein shape are similar. It could also be Joann's but the color schemes don't say Joann's as much as Hobby Lobby. The same is true of the other yarns for me.


I know there is a way to use google to search by using your picture. I've not done it, but you could give it a try. It might pull up an old image with a name.

You can poke around on yarndex,com, that should give you some answers, hopefully.

The bright orange resembles fun fur.  Some of the others are very familiar looking, but I can't put a name to them!  Good luck!
