Name the New Red Barn Yarn!

Red Barn Yarn® and Love of Knitting will be launching an exciting contest this fall to name a brand-new yarn which will be joining the Red Barn Yarn® lineup!

New Yarn Details

Yarn Trio

Our New Yarn Needs a New Name!

The new yarn is a 2-ply worsted weight yarn spun from 45% merino, 40% alpaca, and 15% mohair with 225 yards per skein. It is incredibly soft with a lovely halo, and it will be available in the vibrant dyed colorways for which Red Barn Yarn® is known. This yarn would be beautiful in sweaters, mittens, hats, scarves and even shawls!

Yarn Close Up

Our New Yarn is Hand-painted in Exquisite Colors!

We’re sending our new yarn on a tour of sorts to assorted bloggers and podcasters, starting September 15. We will be posting on our Facebook page and in our Ravelry group the different tour stops as they happen, so be sure to like our page and join the group! We appreciate their help in getting the word out about our new yarn. Within their posts and episodes you will find the details on how you can get a free sample of this yarn and what you’ll need to do to enter your yarn name idea.

We’ll be awarding prizes for the top 3 submissions:

Grand Prize: 1 year subscription to Love of Knitting Magazine; a sweater’s worth of the as-yet-unnamed yarn (7 skeins, 1575 yards), and a special tag with their name on it for the first year of sales following this promotion.

Second & Third Place Runners-Up: 1 year subscription to Love of Knitting Magazine and 2 skeins of the as-yet-unnamed yarn (enough to make a shawl).

Our panel of judges will include:

Catherine Petitti & Jennifer Burt

We hope you will join us on the blog and podcast tour in the coming weeks!
