So I’m on the hunt for a very specific kind of yarn. It’s a beautiful shade of purple and one picked out by my sister-in-law for her Christmas present. I’ve been looking for just the right shade of purple for her for months. It was not easy to find and now here we finally found it, and it was the very last ball my local yarn store had.
So no problem, I’m thinking. I can find some on the internet.
Only to my dismay, I’ve discovered that not only has this yarn been discontinued, but I can’t even find it for sale 2nd hand anywhere either, much less from any online store! At least not in this color! Even Tahki Yarns tried to help me find more by retweeting my request for help on Twitter. And I need at least two more balls to make the promised gift. Ai!
So I’m going to maximize my NaBloPoMo reach and am turning to you for some help.
My dear, dear yarny friends, is there any chance that you have any Tahki Savoy (Merino and Silk blend) yarn in Purple (19) that you are willing to part with and sell to me? Some list it as Amethyst color with part number TKI-SAVY-019. The one ball that I have is dye lot 66. But I’ll take any dye lot I can get. I’ll even buy up to 4 balls of this particular yarn.
Or, if you don’t have this yarn in your stash, would you be willing to take a peek at your own local yarn stores the next time you run in and see if they have it? Then let me know?
Because I’m having no luck and I’m running out of time to get this present made. Oh, and before you suggest, I’ve had no luck on Ravelry.com either.
I guess this yarn is seriously out of date, but it’s the perfect shade of purple, with the perfect softness and amount of sheen, and it took forever to find the perfect shade, so I gotta find more.
Thanks my friends, for any help!

I don’t have any of this, but I do agree it is gorgeous! Good luck finding more.
Thanks! Oh, it is definitely luscious! 🙂 And I’ve found other purple that’s as soft, but not quite the right tone and sheen. (sigh) And she’s really particular about her purple. I can find 50 shades of stone and rust around here, but not purple.
