Now that all the Red Heart yarns have moved into their new home at Yarnspirations.com, I wanted to create something special that would bring two of their yarns together! And I couldn’t wait to give Caron X Pantone Bamboo a try!
A great combo
Combined with Red Heart Soft, the Caron X Pantone Bamboo adds fun pops of color and texture with a smooth silky sheen. I really love the way these two yarns mix together!
