Name the Yarn Winners!

RBYthankyou

Red Barn Yarn® is absolutely thrilled with the response of our friends and fans when we put out the call to help us name our new yarn. We would like to take an extra moment here to say Thank You again to all the podcasters and bloggers that helped us to spread the word about the newly developed yarn in the Red Barn Yarn® line.  Please do check out their podcasts and blogs!

A special Thank You also to everyone who participated in requesting a sample and thoughtfully submitting your ideas. The entries were wonderful, and this was not an easy choice!

Our team of judges included Catherine Petitti, owner of Red Barn Yarn®, Jennifer Burt, Editor-in-Cheif of Love of Knitting magazine, and Valerie Spanos & Karen Hostetler of Mountain Meadow Wool.  We received over 50 entries, many of them clever and well researched. Catherine felt several of the names were so wonderful that she will be asking permission to use them as new colorway names! So, what is the name of the new Red Barn Yarn?

  • Grand Prize Winner: Denise, with “Creekside“, wins a 1 year subscription to Love of Knitting magazine, 7 skeins of our new yarn and for the first year of sales the yarn will have a special tag with her name on it!
  • Second and Third Place: Annette, with “Zen“, and Ruth, with “Allure“, each win a 1 year subscription to Love of Knitting magazine and 2 skeins of the yarn!

We have exciting plans for this new yarn! Look for it in the Spring 2015 Love of Knitting. Creekside will be posted to RedBarnYarn.com shortly, stay tuned to Ravelry and the Red Barn Yarn® Facebook page for further announcements and details. You may order this yarn now, on a pre-order basis as the mill will be spinning for us in June. Expected delivery to customers will be in late June, early July 2015. At that time we will also have a mystery knit along shawl pattern, that will require three skeins of yarn, and is available in 3 different color-ways; jewel tones, earth tones, or primary colors, each color-way will have a total of 6 different colors contained in the three skeins.

For your Holiday gift giving, please check Ravelry for newly posted one skein shawl patterns using our hand-painted Mink yarn.

Happy Holidays from Red Barn Yarn!
