Crochet Yarn Talk – Red Heart Super Saver Stripes Yarn Review
Last week I received a package from Red Heart filled with Yummy Yarn! Super Saver now has 10 New Stripes available! Stripes is a self-striping yarn – which means you get beautiful bright stripes without all those nasty yarn ends to sew in! Lots of color with less work. The color I received is called Retro Stripe and it is so vibrant and fun to crochet with. As you can see in the image above it creates a beautiful striped effect when you crochet. The shawl in the above image is currently blocking and you will be seeing a brand new free pattern very soon, right here on the blog! It will work perfectly with any of the lovely Stripes in the Super Saver collection or any other Super Saver yarn!
The 10 new Stripes in the Super Saver line are: Polo Stripe, Preppy Stripe, Fruity Stripe, Favorite Stripe, Flamenco Stripe, Cool Stripe, Parrot Stripe, Latte Stripe, Bright Stripe and Retro Stripe. If you want to see what the rest of the Joy Creators are working up search using this hashtag online: #JoyCreators
Here are the 10 Super Saver Stripes color options – I think Favorite Stripe might be my ‘favorite stripe’ but I also love Parrot Stripe and Flamenco Stripe! Which one is your favorite?
The New Super Saver Stripes yarn is a 100% Acrylic  Medium Weight yarn. It is available in 5 oz / 141 g ; 236 yds / 215 m balls 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. For the shawl pattern I will be releasing in the next few days you will need 3 balls (this will leave you just enough left over to also make one of my Double Crossed Hats in size Child or smaller). This yarn is Machine Washable and Dryable but because it is acrylic DO NOT use an iron. This product is proudly Made in the USA.
I loved working with the Retro Stripe yarn. The bright colors and lovely sheen of the yarn made working a repetitive stitch pattern enjoyable for me. I normally get bored (shh! my little secret) crocheting the same stitch over and over – which is why you do not see me making a lot of blankets or large projects! The yarn is durable too – which is something I’ve always loved about Super Saver – you can crochet with this yarn and your finished project can last for years. I also find projects worked in Super Saver Yarns soften-up in the wash quite nicely and the stitches still look great! You don’t lose the stitch definition you worked so hard to achieve and your project doesn’t get the ‘fluffies’.
If you would like to purchase some of these beautiful Stripes for yourself, they are available on the Red Heart website: Super Saver Yarn – Stripes
