Naturally Caron: Free Yarn

Facebook folks, head over to Naturally Caron’s fan page and get a FREE Skein of Yarn.

Wonderful Freebie!

For those like me, who think “what is a skien?”:

  • A bundle of strong, elastic fibers or ropes that store relatively large amounts of energy when twisted by a rigid cross beam.
  • A long coil of yarn intended for weaving, dyeing, or heat setting. Yarn sold in skeins often needs to be re-wound into spools or balls using a swift depending on the application. A skein is not a specific unit of length.
    From Wikipedia.

(Thanks Smart Couponing!)

      “what is a skien”

      lol… my mother-in-law will love this (and I earn daughter-in-law points)!


      • Katherine

        me too!!

        • Renee

          Think it would be wrong of me to give it to her and ask her to make me something with it? :D

    • Kim

      Thanks! Hope I get a good color!

    • Website says survey is over already.

    • Too bad, looks like they’re out now, I tried to sign up for it and it says the survey is over now. Good freebie though, thanks.

    • They are not honoring this coupon anymore due to an overwhelming response. You might want to take this offer off! I just started knitting and am dissapointed by the false advertisement from the company! They should have been more prepared!!!!!!!!!!

      Wow – some really harsh comments on their facebook! Why is the internet so hard for some companies to figure out?? People who are used to “mom and pop” size sales have the opportunity to sell to a GLOBAL audience, and they screw it up. I feel bad for Caron’s but maybe they learned a lesson about “free.”

    • Amanda

      I tried too and it states they are all out. Perhaps they sent something to those that were already a fan??

    • Tracey

      I was able to become a fan and sign up for the free sample last night. I think it was just a really popular promo that went quickly!

    • Barbara

      Hey, you win some, you lose some! I would like to have free yarn but I didn’t get there in time. That’s fine. Nice of them to offer it for as long as they could.
