Red Heart Yarns New Super Saver STRIPES and OMBRE

Red Heart Yarns New Super Saver STRIPES and OMBRE

Red Heart Yarns New Super Saver STRIPES and OMBRE was today’s hot, Hot, HOT topic on the Yarn Thing podcast with Marly Bird, and she was joined by Red Heart Yarns own Margaret Eckman. Margaret is their Social Media Specialist and she works with the bloggers (aka Joy Creators!), gets to know the new yarns as they come out. Both she and Marly have known about this new Super Saver was coming out and had to sit on their hands, almost literally!

Super Saver is the Red Heart Yarn line that most people are aware of, it’s found in most craft stores, and often times it the yarn we hand a newbie to try out knitting or crochet. This new gradient or ombre line offers slow color changes that many of us have been craving for so long. I loved how Margaret says they have been sitting around the office looking pretty. So typical of gorgeous yarns!

Marly shared just yesterday in a blog post, complete with videos from her YouTube channel and during the video feed, she showed us the crochet Isoceles Triangle Shawl (shades of purple) and a knitted Fantastic Ripple Scarf (the multicolored). There are actually two choices, there is a gradient Ombre available in 12 colors, which takes a color and changes the tone. SO beautiful and stunning! It’s available in the whopping 10 ounce sized at 482 yards. The Stripes options are added to the Super Saver selection and they’ve added that to the selection by showing a swatch of the changes, available in the 236 yards of 4 ounces and mix really well with other colors in the Super Saver lines.

    So excited about the new yarns! Can’t wait to try them and the videos from Marley are just the ticket; just have to decide which to do–maybe all three! In the meantime I’m knitting washcloths with Scrubby, one of my Red Heart Favirites!!

  2. Valerie Mizgalski says:

    I haven’t tried the Scrubby yarn yet & I can’t wait to get my hands on some Ombre if I can hold of it in UK. I might have to give a shopping list to my air crew friends 🙂

    I’m loving all the new Red Heart stripes an ombré colorways! Until I can lay my hands on them I’ll have to make one of those adorable scrubbing with the Scrubby yarn.

  10. Tami Sifford says:

    The new yarns are so fabulous, and I only have one skein of “scrubby” yarn — its a bit weird for me to work with!

  11. Susan Oeltjen says:

    It must have been difficult to know about these cool colors coming to our stores. I would have blabbed. I can’t wait to get some of the ombre and stripes colors. I may have to order online! Might as well get more Scrubby yarn while I’m shopping. Keep the fun colors coming.

  12. Joan says:

    Hi I listened to the pod cast about red heart yarns and would love to win some ombré or stripes Watched you video on scrubby yarn plus the ombré scarf

  13. Mary Radhuber says:

    I will have to quickly finish up my Scrubby projects so I can try out the stripes and ombre next!

  14. Sharon says:

    Love the new stripes – perfect for the hats and scarves our yarn group makes! Will have to try the scrubby yarn, too!

  15. Danielle says:

    I have loved using the scrubby yarns. The finished product makes excellent gifts! Everyone that has received a scrubby lover it. The ombré yarn looks beautiful!

  16. Victoria Lund says:

    I have some scrubby yarns but I haven’t made anything with them yet. Looking forward to making some cool dishcloth scrubbies for my friend. I loved the show today with the Red Heart Stripes and Ombré yarns. So many new project ideas! Always fun with Marly! So glad I caught it live today!

  18. Kathy M. says:

    I love the Red Heart Scrubby yarn. I just bought the new sparkly yarn. I can’t wait to knit using this fun yarn.

  19. Debby Warnock says:

    Hi Marly, I am a new listener to your podcast, I am a fellow Colorado girl! I would love to have a skein of the new yarn, I’ve been a huge fan of Red Heart yarns for many many years. My mom used RHSS yarn when i was a child.

  20. bookskt19 says:

    Haven’t used scrubby yet, but they’re on my list! They’ll be put into Christmas gifts into for my coworkers later in the year. 🙂

  21. Michelle Brewer says:

    I absolutely love love love the new yarns! Especially the ombre. I also need to try the scrubby yarn. Love red heart!!

  22. Heidi Bradshaw says:

    Am hoping that the Scrubby, Ombré and Stripes yarns will be available in the U.K. We have very few Red Heart yarns available to purchase. If not, I’ll have to place an order and have it shipped here!

  23. Mark says:

    These new yarns look great. I’m especially interested to see the ombre in person. I haven’t had a chance to try scrubby yarn yet.

  24. Heather says:

    I try to work through my stash, so I haven’t had a chance to buy new Red Heart yarns like scrubby or these Stripes, but I’ll have to make a trip to Michaels soon! Thanks for the big reveal!

  25. Holly Kolander says:

    The new yarns look wonderful! I love both the Ombre and the Stripes! I have started working with the Scrubby for washclothes, it works up great. I love most Red Heart yarns, love all the colors. I would love to work up a shawl or baby blanket with the new Ombre or Stripes, both would work great and look beautiful!!

  26. Amberly says:

    Red Heart has some awesome new yarns, like Scrubby (I love the cute patterns they have for it) and now a true ombré/gradient! Yay!

  27. MaryPat says:

    Would love to get my hands on some Scrubby, but now this new line looks amazing , too! Thanks for sharing.

  28. Vicki L Lynch says:

    Red Heart is developing some great new yarns. I love the colors. I have some Scrubby, but I haven’t knitted wit it yet. The new patterns are so cute.

  29. Mimi says:

    I enjoyed the episode today, including the infectious excitement about these new yarns. I wonder what kind of excitement the new Scrubby will generate?

  30. Tracey Del Camp says:

    Hi Marly! I’ve just discovered you in the last two weeks and have watched over 20 videos of yours (so far). I find you incredibly entertaining, warm and so talented! I had learned to knit English style and learned Continental by your videos. Your videos with your Mom are my fav. You’re both so cute! I loved the ombre shawl video you made and can’t wait to get the yarn in purple or blue to give it a whirl. I am also really intrigued by the scrubby yarn and can’t wait to get that and give it a whirl as well. Thanks for all you do!

  31. Michelle says:

    Today is my birthday, well April 20th was. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to crochet some dishclothes with some scrubby yarn to celebrate? Maybe a cake design….

  32. Trisha says:

    How coincidental. I just finished another scrubby pot cleaner in my favorite lime green. Love the scrubby yarn.

  33. Amy says:

    I got to try Scrubby yarn at the Knit and Crochet Show about 3 years ago. They had a fun make and take with it. I used my scrubby to exfoliate my face. I kid you not. It worked great. Looking forward to trying the the new stripes and ombres. Those would be just the ticket for my charity crochet projects that require acrylic.

  34. haileyhugsbooks says:

    I love these new yarns and I’m so excited for what Red Heart is putting out! I love to make people housewarming gifts with dish cloths, pot holders etc… and the scrubby yarn helps me add variety so they get those items plus scrubbies that match! Love the podcast 🙂 — Hailey

  35. Leanne says:

    The new stripe and ombre yarns look amazing. I think I may have purchased every single kind of yarn that Red Heart makes, including Red Heart scrubby. I’m looking forward to trying out these.

  36. Karen Grauman says:

    Just finished 2 black 7 inch square scrubbers in scrubby. What a value…finished both o\in one skein. Can’t wait to try ombré and stripes.

  37. Kathie Duso says:

    I made 2 scrubby’s for my Mom and Sister for Easter using Red Heart Scrubby yarn. I’m working on the last one for myself – hoping to get it done soon! Can’t wait to try the new yarns……love anything multicolored!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  38. Nikki Nothstein says:

    Bummed I forgot to comment. Can’t wait until I get my ombré yarn. It has shipped. Looking forward to it! I’ve never used Scrubby before.

  39. Dorothy Monica says:

    Enjoyed listening, did I hear that there is something new about Scrubby that is going to be announced?

  40. [email protected] says:

    I love ombre yarns but the price has stopped me from trying them. I am glad to hear that Red heart has developed this yarn, especially since I almost always knit with acrylic, because it is the only fiber that will withstand my little boy’s grubby little hands….speaking of grubby, looking forward to hearing more about scrubby.

  41. amy says:

    I bought a skein of red scrubby yarn a while back, but haven’t used it yet. This podcast has me motivated to get it out and make a wash cloth with it.

  42. Whitney Lebron says:

    I’m rediscovering knitting and super excited about all the different types of yarn that is available including Scrubby, ombre, and stripes!! Marly love your podcast and videos!!

  43. Kavita Deepchand says:

    Scrubby – I haven’t knitted any scrubbies. Ombre yarn is just great. Thanks for your podcast. I’m learning a lot.

  44. Steph says:

    I have not tried Scrubby myself yet, but I’ve heard great things about using it for washcloths!

  45. Brenda Ocker says:

    Listened to the podcast to learn of something new from Red Heart – Ombre – and learned they have scrubby yarn. Learned two new things today.

  46. Zoi Taylor says:

    Keyword:Scrubby. I can’t wait to start a project with Red Heart Stripes! I love your podcasts! Thank you!
