Hi! A couple of weeks ago I was super surprised to received a couple skeins of new yarn from Red Heart Yarns in their Super Saver family – ombre and stripes. Almost immediately I started a new pattern with the stripes – my Unicorn Argyle Bags pattern. I really loved working with the new stripes yarn and when I find more in my area I’m definitely going to buy it more of it.
As you can see in the photos, the colors transition well in Bright Stripe, which is the color I received. I love variegated yarns but I usually hate when the color changes are abrupt and harsh – when they fade into each other is really what I prefer, which is what you have here.
It’s a good, sturdy worsted weight yarn that felt softer, to me at least, than average Super Saver (which is what I used for the white sections of the Unicorn Argyle Bag). I really liked it and I don’t really have anything bad to say about it. It’s a really great addition to the Super Saver Family, which is my go-to for my ami patterns. In fact, I’ve also started a pattern, the Rose Quarts Bag, for the Ombre yarn and I really enjoyed that – unfortunately there was a knot in it and it disrupted the flow of the color but the transition, when it works, is absolutely gorgeous.
Sale – use the code Stripes to get the Unicorn Argyle Bags for 50% off in my Ravelry shop through August 14th.
So, to celebrate and spread the wealth around, Red Heart Yarns and I are hosting a giveaway! Oh, how I wish I could win this yarn.Valued at $25, 1 winner will get 4 skeins of ombre yarn and 3 skeins of stripes.
How wonderful, right? I hope you like this yarn as much as I do. 🙂
