I don't think so, because "Mainstay" is a brand that walmart has on other items in the store, such as sheets, towels and linens, lots of house hold items carry the "Mainstay" brand name, and Walmart is the only place I have ever seen this brand. I assume it's a brand that some company makes solely for Walmart. I don't think that Bernat makes sheets and towels and stuff......or do they??

It is quite possible that Bernat is the factory that makes the Mainstay Yarn. And then a sheet and towel manufacturer could be making the Mainstay sheets and towels. And so on and so forth.

Oh! I get it!! So it probably IS a "walmart" brand, and walmart gets all these different companies to make the stuff. Ok, that makes sense.

Ya, to my knowledge, WM doesn't make its own stuff...other major manufacturers do but WM sticks their label on it. So, in many instances, I imagine, you get comparable name-brand quality with a WM-branded label and, therefore, a cheaper price <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

For example - I got a new electric skillet for Christmas. It is a GE skillet, but stamped on the bottom is says "Made by GE for WalMart".

I read in another group that Walmart is going to rename all their Mainstay products and that the yarn would be coming back.

This person said she worked at Walmart, and the employees had not been told the new name or when the yarn would be available.

That's cool!! I'll be looking out for that. By the way, I can't believe how many looks this thread has gotten since I started it.

How do we know that Bernat made the yarn under the Mainstays name? I checked a label and it doesn't say who it was made by. Just that it was manufactured for Wal-Mart. I got on this forum to help out my mom. She also loves the Mainstays, not too thrilled by the Red Heart. She is currently working on an afghan and needs more True Red #1707. I'm going to get on the Bernat website and see if I can find this color/number. If anyone has anymore info on the Mainstays line, please let me know, thanks!

I originally posted that...I read it elsewhere. I'll see if I can remember where I saw it some months back....
