Red Heart yarns – Proudly Made in the USA

Did you know Super Saver and many of your favorite Red Heart yarns areMadeinUSAflag made in the USA at our own mills in Albany, and Douglas, GA? Our mills are equipped with state of the art technology, are environmentally friendly and staffed with well trained, experienced and dedicated employees.     

We mass produce yarns in very high volumes so that we can be as cost effective as possible. This means that whenever we run a particular color we could run anywhere from 10,000 to 50,000 pounds of yarn – so in terms of Super Saver 7 oz skeins,  this is 23,000 – 114,000 skeins at a time!  That’s a lot of afghans!

SuperSaverSkeinsHow do we come up with the colors you see in the stores? We listen to your suggestions, we monitor different fashion trend sites and our team keeps an eye out for new color trends we see emerging.  We present all the new shades to the buyers of your favorite chain retailers and they choose which shades they think will sell best in their stores. This process generally takes a year from when we decide to develop a color until you see it on the shelves at your retailer. New colors are typically launched during the summer, so that when the weather turns cold in the fall and you are raring to pick up your needles and hooks again after a long hot summer, the stores are loaded up with a great new selection to inspire you!

Red Heart and You. Two Hearts. One Passion.

    why are some of your worsted weight yarns thicker than others?

    • redheart

      Hi, Great question! Each weight category as designated by the Craft Yarn Council (the standard that Red Heart uses) includes a range of sizes/gauges. You can find out more in our blog post What do we mean by Yarn Weight?

    I watched your interesting video! Do you sell the skeins hat are rejected for weight at your Albany mill? I live close enough to go there.

      Dear Alice, Thank you for your question. No, we do not sell the skeins that are not approved. Rejected yarn is either recycled or goes into our donation program. As a note, our mill is not open for visitors.

      Hi Aisha, Thank you for your question. Our facilities are not open to the public, and we do not have any outlets. To buy our yarn in person, you can go to retailers such as Walmart, Michaels, JoAnns, etc.
