I have a room almost solely dedicated to Red Heart yarns - especially the Ombres and Stripes - one wash and dry cycle - and/or pinning to a foam board and hovering my steam iron above a block - and you would not believe how soft it becomes. Would love to add a pic but don't know how.
color is what I expected
As a rule I love Red Heart Ombre yarn, I have made afghans in the teal color and the violet. This one turned out basically just as nice, however the yarn itself was not as well made as the other ones indicated above. There were thin areas where I had to cut the area out and reattach. It also seemed rather "stiff" to work with compared to the violet and teal. It does look quite nice though once all the ends are sewed in.
I find this product very good for knitting sweaters and I have not had any problems with it
Really like this yarn
