Red Heart Soft Yarn Review

Red Heart Soft Yarn Review


Reviewed by Christine Weiher, Editor,

If you are in need of an ultra soft yarn that will not irritate even the most sensitive skin, turn to Red Heart's Soft. This yarn is soft and squishy to the touch, perfect for any and all projects you can think of. During the winter, this yarn is great for gloves because the softness combats snagging against any dry or cracked skin. This yarn is great for working up gifts for friends and family, but watch out, you might not want to give it away after you feel this yarn!


This yarn shines in more areas than texture, however. My favorite feature about this yarn is that there is no dye lot. Too many projects of mine were ruined by not buying enough of the yarn, and realizing too late that I need more yarn than expected. Whenever I go back to the store, I can never find the correct dye lot again, and I am forced to use a slightly different color to end my project. With Soft yarn you no longer have to worry about buying yarn in bulk for your projects, and you can buy a few skeins at a time to eliminate having way too much and only making projects with navy blue yarn for two months.


Taking care of your projects has never been easier than with Soft. Worsted weight yarn means it is good for any project you work up, and it is machine washable for quick and easy cleaning. If you feel uncomfortable or are worried about putting your new afghan or cardigan in the dryer, the 100% acryclic yarn will air dry in no time, leaving you with a project that hasn't shrunk and looks like it just slid right off of your needles!

I absolutely love this yarn!

My favorite yarn !

So many patterns , so little time!!!

I have been a Red Heart yarn user for over 60 yrs and always had good luck with it. Now I see the Soft yarn and am really anxious to try that. After reading about it, I'm sure it will be a "hit" with me. Thanks
