My mother wants to crochet a rug but is unable to find Aunt Lydia's Rug Yarn where she lives. From reading other emails from different sites, it sounds like it is a difficult yarn to find. I was able to find Aunt Lydia's Craft and Rug Yarn at a Ben Franklin where I live and mailed a few skeins to my mother. We both agree that it is not the same Aunt Lydia's Rug Yarn that we recall from years ago. It is a different feel and maybe not as thick. I'm wondering if the days of making a yarn rug are disappearing since it is so difficult to find.
