Some history:

Before starting American Yarns, I spent quite a few hours browsing online trying to find some of the beautiful Red Heart Yarns I had seen before. To my surprise, most suppliers were/are located in the America or the UK and it was very difficult to find a local supplier in Australia.  Furthermore, every time I looked online I encountered the many ads from the same big big suppliers overseas. All of them offering the yarn in their local currencies and postage costs to Australia were outrageously expensive.

Recently, it has all changed. The shops overseas noticed our passion for crochet and knitting in Australia and are now offering Red Heart yarns in Australian dollars at very competitive prices and what is even better, they even offer free delivery on orders above certain values.

Very big brands like Lovecrechet.com and deramores.com are pushing their products and have now taken over Google’s search results blanketing the screen with their paid ads, providing a wide range of American Yarns that can be purchased in Australian dollars.

So many ads!

At American Yarns we understand that this is how a competitor works and that big corporations are engaged in a race to keep growing their market share. However, American Yarns exists because we love crochet and knitting, we also get very excited whenever we get to try new high quality yarns. With that in mind, we only bring to Australia the yarns that are not easily available in our currency. Hence, if you are trying to find a specific range of Red Heart Yarn that is not easily available in Australia, we would like to source it for you.

So far, we have noticed that Lovecrochet.com and deramores.com stock some of the Red Heart baby range in a wide variety of colours and great prices! for that reason we won’t be interfering with them and instead we will focus on satisfying your love for yarn and bring the baby yarns that they are not sourcing yet.

With more than a hundred varieties of just the Red heart brand still not available in our country, there are many wonderful projects that are being neglected. We are resolved to fix this problem and bring the missing varieties, so you and I can crochet or knit those baby blankets and toys we have been planning for a while.

Red Heart Baby range:

Red Heart Buttercup:

  • red heart buttercupSuper Bulky (5-6 wpi) (Ravelry)
  • 67% Polyester 33% Nylon (Polyamide)
  • 58 meters – 50 grams

Super soft and snuggly! Very light and airy yarn that will help you crochet or knit up quickly

Pros: very soft to the touch, perfect for babies.

Cons: novice crocheters can find the yarn difficult to work with because of its fluffiness.

Very hard to find the stitches with the crochet hook. But, knitted it is beautiful.

Pattern ideas:

Baby booties, sweaters, baby blankets, toys and hats.

Where to buy in Australian dollars:

We stock several shades of Red Heart Buttercup for AUD $9.95. Fispond.com.au stocks it with prices ranging: $9.45 – $14.95, and on Yarnover.com.au it is available for pre-order at only AUD $7.00 plus shipping.


Baby clouds Yarn:

  • red heart baby cloudsSuper Bulky (5-6 wpi) (Ravelry)
  • 100% Acrylic
  • 128 meters – 170 grams
  • 8.0 sts = 4 inches

This textured, bulky weight yarn is soft and light as a cloud.

Pros: Soft and Light

Cons: It splits a lot.

  • Wears and tears easily with normal use and machine wash  
  • the yarn is very fluffy and it makes it very difficult to  see the stitches well enough to see what you’re doing.
  • Babies and toddlers can pull out wisps of yarn and put them in their mouths.

Pattern ideas: Very good for blankets that everyone wants to touch and snuggle in. Also toys and winter hats.

Where to buy in Australian dollars: We could not find a single source to buy this yarn is AUD.



Red Heart Cutie Pie Yarn:

  • red heart cutie pie yarnWorsted / 10 ply
  • 100% Polyester
  • 298 meters / 100 grams

The two words that best describe this yarn are: Light and SOFT.

Pros: Good for large projects using simple stitches

Cons:  It sticks to needles and hooks

  • the fuzz comes  off easily, so we would not recommend it for baby items it also snaps easily.
  • Very difficult to undo when you make a mistake, so it can be frustrating to work with.

Pattern ideas:

Would work well for an adult sweaters that can last all winter or a warm set of slippers! and maybe a nice set of fluffy socks.

Where to buy in Australian dollars:  we are looking at stocking this yarn if we recieve enough enquries, you can also go to stuff4crafts they stock the koala colour for AUD $5.63



We are completely addicted to the Red Heart range and have spent countless hours browsing their site, with over a 100 different types of yarn on their online store, I never get bored of browsing their many options and if I could,  my house would be covered in yarn of all colours.

    I am looking to source some red heart yarn r h boutique unforgettable stained glass would you have any or know where I might find it please.

    Yarnover in Brisbane (formerly known as “American Yarns”) continues to stock all American yarns in Australia. They’ve been the premier supplier of American yarn here for years. Wasn’t sure if you knew that? When I found your website today, I thought my eyes were deceiving me! ;-) But, it’s always nice to know there is competition out there, and I’m happy to support your new shop. Am placing my order today.

    Will you be stocking Bernat Softee Chunky at any point in the future? Also, I’ve been chasing the Caron Tulip Etimo 10.0mm/N hook, and can’t seem to find it anywhere. Do you have any plans to stock hooks in the future too, or perhaps have a contact in the US who can ship one out to me? The Tulip Etimo is a favourite with me, but difficult to source here, particularly as a single entity and not part of collection of hooks.

    Best of luck with your new venture!
    Cheers, heather

    • ftupw says:

      Dear Heather, thank you for your lovely message. Yes we do stock the Bernat Softee Chunky, we are just out of stock and waiting on our new shippment to arrive! have you tried the Bernat Softee Baby Chunky, the same but it has a beautiful shine to it!

      I will try to source the hook for you no problem and yes it is our intention to add some hooks and needles to our website!

      Thank you again Heather for your support and we look forward to assisting you in the future of any stock you want, just let us know. My direct email is pauline@americanyarns.com.au

    I think you guys do a fantastic job. I started needle crafting few months ago and realised quickly how hard it is to source yarn that is 10 ply and over here in Australia. I live in country WA and cannot justify driving 300km return to spotlight, plus their selection is not necessarily great, nor are their prices or their P&H charges. Ordering straight from the US through Amazon or Yarnspiration is ridiculously expensive I did found loveknitting.com but I because I like to order for a few projects at the time it seems they are always out of stock of something so I cant never complete an order. Then I found you, and you do have a very good selection, decent prices and PH charges, plus you do source specific colours / yarn or back order when we ask. Your customer service is great. Keep up the good work !

  9. Serin Lynn says:

    I can’t find Red Heart Scrubby Sparkle yarn anywhere. Doesn’t anyone crochet scrubbies in Aus? Wish I’d stocked up before leaving the US. Is this something you’d consider stocking please? I’m after the yellow and avocado green yarns to make pineapples!

  10. Josephine Anker says:

    Hi. I am looking for Red Heart Super Saver Favorite Stripe, Parrot Stripe and Ombré Bluetiful. I need four balls of each. Can you help?

    • Jasmine says:

      Yes we can help, we have all three items yours after, some are out of stock and some we have in stock, either way you’re welcome to put through an order and any out of stock items will be placed on backorder and ordered through our stockist.

      Please head to our website to find all three items.

  11. Jeanette Stillman says:

    Have bought Red Heart Super Saver from you before, love the yarn, however I bought Red Heart Aran (huge 300g ball I think) from Big W and have made 6 blankets with it. Big W no longer stocks it and I haven’t seen it on Red Heart page. Is this beautiful yarn still available, if not what is a substitute? Many thanks

  12. Rhonda says:

    What do they mean by Medium
