I looked but didn't see anything. It said the width, the brand, the composition, etc.  No length.  Some of the packages were already opened as people bought yardage.  I might have to get a partial one, but it's still at a good price.

Let us know how many yards you get!  I'm sure there'll still be some left today.

OK.  I got a bolt of 15 yards for $116.85; regular price was $194.85.  It's Hobbs Heirloom Batting, 80/20, a blend I like a lot for my quilts.  The good side:  it's so nice to be able to cut to fit and not have large pieces left over.  The bad side:  the roll takes up a lot of room!

Wrap a quilt around it and stand it in a corner of a room somewhere.  Does not have to be in your sewing room.

A very good idea!

JoAnns measures it even if it’s sealed up!

Surprisingly, they didn't measure! But when I checked out and the clerk scanned the barcode, she told me the price was $10.10.  I asked her was that correct?  And she said yes, it was $12.99 originally and was on sale for 40% off, $7.79.  I said but it is 15 yards.  So she scanned again and the true price came up.  She just said-- and I am not kidding--Oops!  Darned conscience.

Yes, I would have done the same thing. They have bills to pat like we do!

And was this clerk a juvenile, someone under the age of twenty-one?

Any mature clerk (someone who can do math in her head) would have realized that $10.10 was an unrealistic price for a bolt of batting.
