Crochet Yarn Talk – Red Heart Super Saver Ombré Yarn Review
Last week I received a package from Red Heart filled with Yummy Yarn! Last week I shared with you 2 free crochet patterns I designed with my Super Saver Stripes Yarn. If you missed it, you can read my Crochet Yarn Talk Review HERE and get the free patterns for all 11 sizes of the Double Crossed Hat HERE and the Tropical Breeze Wrap Pattern HERE. I also received 2 BIG balls of Red Heart Super Saver Ombré Yarn.
This weekend, if you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a sneak peek for today’s Scarf of the Month Club free pattern. I was crocheting it out on the back deck and enjoying some lovely sunshine at the time. I designed the pattern for the Ocean Breeze Scarf using 1 ball of the Red Heart Super Saver Ombré Yarn. The color I received is called True Blue and as you crochet with pretty yarn it transitions between different shades of blue. Here’s the finished project:
The Ocean Breeze Scarf will be available later today on my blog.

The Red Heart Super Saver Ombré Yarn is available in 12 bright colors.
From left to right in the top row are: Anemone, Anthracite, Baja Blue, Cocoa, Deep Teal and Jazzy.
From left to right in the bottom row are: Purple, Scuba, Sea Coral, Spearmint, True Blue and Violet.
I personally love the color I was sent (True Blue) and would also like to get my hands on Anemone and Anthracite. I’m thinking I may even be persuaded to design and crochet a blanket using one of those colorways!
The Super Saver Ombré Yarn is a 100% Acrylic  Medium Weight yarn. It is available in large balls of 10 oz / 283 g ; 482 yds / 440 m and does have specific dye lots. So if you are working on a large project be sure to buy enough yarn in your dye lot to finish the project. This yarn is Machine Washable on a Gentle Cycle and Tumble Dryable on a Low setting and because it is acrylic please remember not to use an iron. This product is proudly Made in the USA.
The colors are spectacular – ranging from a deep sapphire blue to pale stonewashed blue jean blue shade – all in a single ball. There is quite a bit of depth to the color too – it isn’t flat but has a bit of a shine to it. I am pretty impressed with this yarn – from the color, softness, quality and because in the entire ball (all 482 yds) I did not come across even one tied end, or knot! I pulled the center yarn end out of the ball and worked the whole project.
Truth Time: After working with this yarn I’ve realized something – Red Heart Super Saver is much softer than I remember it being. I have crocheted with Super Saver yarn in the past and I have always liked to use it for projects like my Amigurumi, slippers and mittens because it is super durable and long lasting yarn. It doesn’t pile or lose stitch definition with wear and it is affordable and easy to find in most of the shops I buy my yarn from. The Red Heart Super Saver Yarns I received this past week are softer – not super soft and prone to piling and fluffing but soft enough that I don’t mind having the finished scarf wrapped around my bare neck…and I have pretty sensitive skin. I recommend giving it a try to see if you think it feels softer too 🙂
