I was given the opportunity to try out and review some Red Heart yarn products! I love Red Heart yarns and products as a whole! I have to say I'm very thankful for this opportunity! I still have a couple of the yarns to work with and review but I have tried a majority of the yarns that were sent to me.
The first yarn I was SUPER excited about trying was the Red Heart Reflective yarn! The softness of this yarn is amazing! The reflective "thread" that runs through the yarn does get a bit scratchy and might be itchy if it were worn directly on the skin. I love the amount of reflectiveness that is in the yarn as well! Makes for a bright impression when it's all "lit up"! The only con that I had with this yarn was the number of knots that were in the yarn from it being either cut or split. I was able to work around it them though.
I used the Red Heart Heads Up yarn with the Reflective yarn while writing a new pattern! I have to say I love the softness and thickness of this yarn! So soft and warm! I would have NO problem making other items with this yarn in the future. The only con that I had with this yarn was the threads of the yarn do split quite easily. There were some knots throughout this skein of yarn as well but easily worked around. You can see a picture of the Heads Up and the Reflective yarns used in the pictures at the end of this post.
The Medley yarn is AMAZING! Soft, thick and beautiful, this yarn is perfect for any project that you're looking to make it with! Perfect for hats, scarves and mittens! I loved working this up and how wonderful it feels on my skin.
I was also given some Swanky to try! I have to say, this is the first time I wasn't a fan of a Red Heart yarn! The sequins were difficult to work around and kept getting caught on all of the other yarn in the skein! While it's pretty and shiny, I wouldn't recommend using this yarn with anything smaller than an I hook honestly.
