I was working on a pattern last night that called for Spinnerin Touchdown Yarn. Out of curiosity, I slipped over to Google to see what it was. Well, sometimes, these vintage yarns can be quite challenging, which is the case with this one. Google results, other than a couple pattern references, had nothing. That means, not a single skein for sale on Ebay or Etsy, a blog post showing off a stash., nor a single detail page at Ravelry. Nothing. Now, the challenge was on. I headed right over to Newspaper.com.
The yarn was introduced to the market in late 1948.
