2019 Spring Gift Review & Giveaway - Red Heart Yarn Package

Today I am happy once again to share with you some of the new yarn from Red Heart - and announce a giveaway for some of them as well. If you enjoy crocheting or knitting, these yarns will make wonderful items you could give for Mother's Day, Father's Day, Children's Day, any other special event, or to get a start on your gifts for Christmas.

Sweet Home
Italian Story Ora Wool Blend Yarn
Made by - Red Heart Yarns

Favorite Features -
  • All have the quality I expect from Red Heart
  • The Amigurumi yarn has enough yarn for two projects - and the instructions for making fun items
  • The Sweet Home and Italian Story Ora yarns are SO soft and the colors are rich and beautiful - anything you make from these you will love for sure
Red Heart says; "Amigurumi yarn is a wheel of fun! Each four-color wheel makes the two characters pictured on the band or put your creative hat on and make a different character. All patterns and colors are interchangeable! The 12 unique character designs are so adorable, you’ll want to stitch them all. 

Plush and comfy, Sweet Home, is a chenille-style yarn which is made for cozy home décor and more. The super-bulky weight is easy to stitch, allowing your projects to work up quickly. Our color palette includes relaxed neutrals and fun pops which are able to stand alone or be mixed together.

Who can resist a thick beautiful roving type yarn which is perfect for apparel as well as home decoration? This gorgeous wool blend comes in an array of mixable solids. You'll just have to make something in every color!"

I find the Amigurumi yarn to be so much fun! The colors are bright and the patterns are fun - definitely a yarn for a grandma to try. This is also an excellent choice for when you want to help your grandchildren learn to crochet! Definitely check Amigurumi out!

Sweet Home and Italian Story Ora Wool Blend Yarn are amazing! I do not know yet what I am going to make out of them, but the colors are deep and rich and the yarn is so soft - I expect them to be fun to work with and am quite sure I will love the finished projects! If you are looking for a very soft yarn, you will want to look at both of these. These new yarns from Red Heart absolutely put a lot of fun into yarn.
