Red Heart has debuted an amazing new line of yarns - An Italian Story! These yarns are made in Italy, and they are absolutely gorgeous. The one that called to me right away was the An Italian Story Ombra, with gorgeous color-shifting and chainette construction - and I get to give away enough to make an upcoming free crochet pattern here on Moogly!
Disclaimer: This giveaway was sponsored by Red Heart Yarns.
Red Heart An Italian Story Ombra is 47% Acrylic/ 47% Wool/ 6% Nylon, a "4", Medium, or Worsted/Aran weight - that would be a 10-12 ply in the UK. The wool adds some grip to the hook or needles, as well as a soft, natural look and feel. And the chainette construction makes it super stretchy, and lighter than other worsted yarns!
Red Heart Italian Story Ombra comes in 8 beautiful colorways! Each cake of Ombra is 3.5 oz./100 g and 249 yd (228 m), and is available on RedHeart.com.
So far I've made one pattern in Red Heart Italian Story Ombra,
debuting here on Moogly very soon - now available! Click HERE to make the Tuscan Sun Wrap! It uses a US-N, 9.0mm hook, and 4 cakes of Red Heart Italian Story Ombra - 2 in the Sorbetto (pink) colorway, and 2 in the Fiamma (orange) colorway. Which colors would you combine? Here are some fun combos I came up with:
And that will be the very first crochet pattern - and the first one designed by an American (unless someone beats me to the punch in the meantime)! This Italian yarn does have three free knit patterns out now, by Italian designers!
You can buy Red Heart Italian Story Ombra right from RedHeart.com, and because we all need more yarn (of course!) you can enter to win 4 skeins of it right here on Moogly, courtesy of Red Heart Yarn, in your choice of colorways - just enter below! This will be just enough to make my new pattern... how convenient! 😉
There is now a Yarn Love video up on the Moogly YouTube Channel for this yarn too - featuring a sneak peek of the new pattern! Now, on to that giveaway!
