Heart disease and hand knitting, not the usual combination

Plymouth Yarn Company was approached by Laura Zander about joining Jimmy Beans Wool and The Heart Truth Campaign,  in June 2011.  We were very interested in the project and the need to spread the word about the #1 killer of women in America, heart disease.  Knitters are very passionate people.  Knitters care, and share.  Knitting is about community and charity.  

Stitch Red is such an awesome way to spread the word about the disease, and offer knitters a way to get involved in the program.   

We have dedicated 2 new products to the campaign:

Encore Worsted, 75 Acrylic 25 Wool, and new color 475, to the project.  You can purchase the color here.  You can see the entire Encore Worsted colors selection here.  America’s Best Selling yarn for decades, this yarn is Machine Wash and Dry.  Encore Worsted is an easy care for knitters of all calibers.   It is a prefect yarn to knit for gifting projects.   Our design teams has developed a new pattern (2193), this will be available for purchase real soon.
One of the best of the best, Eros II was the top selling novelty yarns of all times.  You can create beautiful Scarves, Shawls, Tops, and even Jewelry.  We have developed this free pattern (F418) for your use.  Click here to Free Pattern.

We were unable to attend the The Heart Truth's Red Dress Collection Fashion Show, on February.  But you can see great images from the event here, courtesy of Jill Seiman, GLAMAMOM.com.  The fashion show was a huge success.  You can also see excerpt the fashion show on You Tube.

Plymouth Yarn Company was one of the first to join with Jimmy Beans Wool to help promote this important campaign.  We are pleased to be involved with this very high profile cause. 

Please join us and help spread the word about Heart Disease.
