Let's Celebrate With More Yarn!

My online store, Gantsilyo Guru Selections, is preparing for a surge of yarn for the last quarter of the year! New yarn from Red Heart and Hamanaka will be offered for the first time (officially) in the country. We will definitely have a (yarn) feast!
To kick start the introduction of our new line of yarn, we will be raffling off some of these starting with Red Heart Celebration Yarn!

It is quite timely to have this yarn in your stash for the holiday season because of the metallic thread intertwined with the yarn. This is Red Heart's description of Celebration:

"Celebration yarn is a party in a ball! Bright fun shades with a touch of metallic are perfect for everyday and holiday projects that are sure to get noticed. Celebrate your love of knit and crochet with new Red Heart Celebration!"
This yarn is made of 96% acrylic and 4% metallic polyester. Yarn thickness is Medium Worsted (4). A skein of Celebration yarn is 100g and is 215m long. The recommended hook size is  5mm (US H8). You may also knit with this with the recommended needle size of 5mm (US 8). Of course, hook and needle sizes still depend on the required gauge of a project. 

The skein above is in Gold/Silver. Check out the other festive colors of Celebration Yarn that will be offered beginning October!
Here are just some of the projects you can do with Celebration yarn. All of these have free patterns from Red Heart!

  2. That's a fabulous idea... I never had tried such thing... next Christmas will rock with such ideas... Thanks.. We usual use Low Shrinkage Polyester... you know that... if don't you can get More Info About Low Shrinkage Polyester Yarn here... BUt this is seriously a fab thing... I appreciate it. :)

  3. Polyester is used in the manufacture of many products, including clothing, home furnishings, industrial fabrics, computer and recording tapes, and electrical insulation. Polyester has several advantages over traditional fabrics such as cotton. It does not absorb moisture, but does absorb oil; this quality makes polyester the perfect fabric for the application of water-, soil-, and fire-resistant finishes. Its low absorbency also makes it naturally resistant to stains. Polyester clothing can be preshrunk in the finishing process, and thereafter the fabric resists shrinking and will not stretch out of shape such as made from high tenacity polyester yarn. The fabric is easily dye-able, and not damaged by mildew. Textured polyester fibers are an effective, non-allergenic insulator, so the material is used for filling pillows, quilting, outerwear, and sleeping bags.
