I think it’s safe to say that we all love trying new yarn. There’s something exciting and refreshing about grabbing a new colour or fiber to create with. While it is comforting and familiar to have our old favourites that we like to use, it’s exciting and fun to pick up and experience a new brand or line and see what can be made from it. Today’s yarn review focuses on Red Heart Super Saver Ombre.
I enjoy using Red Heart yarn and I definitely have a few in my stash. However, I finally picked up two skeins of their Ombre line for the first time and was immediately in love with it. The colourways are stunning. The way the shades in the skein fade together is so soft and subtle with such a gradual change, that it blends beautifully and naturally creating a unique and gorgeous finished piece.
I made a simple scarf using a basic moss stitch which complimented this yarn perfectly. It really allowed the ombre effect to shine and displayed the stitch nicely as well. Each skein is approximately 440m which is plenty to make an average length scarf. It’s 100% acrylic, is machine washable and can also be placed in the dryer which is always a bonus. It’s soft and comfortable for wearable projects and I had no issue with splitting, pulling or twisting. The skein was perfect and free from tangles or knots making it easy to use.
It’s listed as a medium weight yarn with a recommended hook size of 5.5mm which makes it a great yarn for almost any project. It’s a pretty accessible yarn to find and I’ve seen it in most craft and department stores as well as online. If you haven’t used this yarn yet, I definitely recommend grabbing one or two and giving it a try. You won’t regret it and I’m sure it won’t be the last skein from this line that you’ll purchase. With all the beautiful colourways and how easily it works up, you’ll want to try them all…I know I do!
