Also, a #3 thread might work but they're not as soft as Luster Sheen unless you can find DMC Senso. But read the labels. There are different varieties. Suggest looking up the information at dmc.com.
Do you have Hobby Lobby? Mine carries it and the price is over $4.50, I believe. I'm surprised Michael's doesn't have it but you said that's an hour away!
Good luck! Hope you can find something!

At my WM, they do not special order yarn! I was very disappointed.
I'll have to check out the Bernat Cool Crochet, that would probably work too.
I'm so excited, now I have a lot of choices!

A yarn I've discovered at the LYS is a good substitute: Plymouth Wildflower DK. It's an Acrylic/Cotton blend and I found it worked very well as a substitute for Lustersheen.
Really?! I have a ton of patterns using Plymouth Wildfower DK but none of that yarn. I have a ton of Lustersheen but only a few patterns. Guess what I'll be doing this weekend!?

I agree about trying Senso, too. Although I can only find it at Hobby Lobby and Hancock. My Hancock Fabrics closed though.
Someone said Paton's Grace. Not at Wal-Mart. It is at Michael's and Joanns. You might try Lionbrand Microspun instead. It's at both those places and at Wal-Mart. Plus it's machine washable.
Hobby Lobby carries it. HL isn't everywhere though.
No stores carries it anymore. (Darn)
Some Joann's carries it.
