Yarn Giveaway December 2014
LoomaHat.com is giving away 3 Skeins of a very, very special version of Premier Yarns Ever Soft for Yarn Giveaway December 2014. I’m excited about this one. It’s Yarn on a Mission !
Premier Yarns has partnered with one of the worlds largest humanitarian organizations to help collect 100,000 handmade items. According to the Premier Yarn Website :A portion of each purchase of Premier Ever Soft yarn goes to benefit Knit For Kids and their mission to provide warmth, hope, and joy to children living in poverty across the world . I thought buying and giving away 3 skeins of this very special yarn was one way of participating in this awesome campaign.
What else could I do? I could buy more yarn to add to the mountain I already have, knit a cute hat and Tell you about their efforts and how You Too can give to this worthy cause while you enter to win same cool yarn. And don’t forget to share this link with your friends.
Note: I purchased the give-away yarn at my local AC Moore .

First Let’s Talk Yarn
This is a silky, soft, thin worsted weight yarn with a hint of sheen. It comes in 36 solid and 9 multis colors. I love the feel of the yarn. It reminds me a lot of Caron Simply Soft though its a smaller skein at 158 yards / 144.5 meters compared to 200 yards / 182 meters with the Caron.
