Wintuk Yarn

Posted on Friday, November 20th, 2009 at 12:42 pm

Is Red Heart yarn a good brand to knit with?

Yes, it can be. Some folks report it to be scratchy, plastic, stiff, etc. Others absolutely love it. I find there is an enormous difference between the virgin - being knit - state and the garment once it has gone through the laundry with fabric softener.

RH has a firm feel to it and wears absolutely like iron. It comes in a great many colors over the years and in many versions. How it feels depends on the yarn you are using. Red Heart Ltd. puts out a large number of yarn types. The glitzy, Christmas, evening yarns like Shimmer are a little scratchy, because of the 'metallic' thread that is woven through, but that is the same for any brand that adds the glitter. But they also have baby yarn including one that is very fluffy called "Baby Clouds" "Soft Touch" and "Baby Soft" none of these are are in the least bit scratchy, or 'cheap'. Red Heart yarns have traditionally been sold as a workhorse yarn, and the Super Saver has always been a good buy economically.as has the Wintuk which comes in a one pound version. Afghans and pillow knit or crocheted with RH Super Saver yarns still look the same 40 years later through many, many washing, although you can tell by the colors that date the piece. Remember avocado green and Harvest gold? Ah the 70's.
