Free Yarn - Caron Is Giving Away Free Samples of Their Country Yarn

By November 17, 2009

Follow me on:

I just found this page on the Caron web site. It has information about how you can receive a free full-sized skein of NaturallyCaron.com Country yarn. They also have some free crochet patterns available for you as well.

I know some of you love Caron yarns, so I wanted to be sure to pass the info along in case you want to try it out.

This giveaway is open to people who have already used Caron Simply Soft yarns, or at least are willing to buy some and give them a try; you'll need to send them 3 Caron Simply Soft yarn labels, along with some information, in order to receive your free skein of yarn. Please refer to their web site for all the specifics of their offer.

I was not able to find an end date for this promotion; their web site says "This offer is available while supplies last."

Personally, I am not planning on taking them up on the giveaway. For starters, I am not that excited about the yarn. It's a blend of wool and microdenier acrylic, which doesn't particularly appeal to me. Don't let my lack of enthusiasm hinder you if it sounds like something you'd enjoy using - I am sure it's probably a perfectly nice yarn.

Those of you who decide to try it out, I hope you will come back and comment to let us know how you like the yarn.

I probably won’t take them up on this, but I just wanted to say that I have used Caron Country and I love this yarn. It was easy to work with, the colors are beautiful, and so far has washed and worn really well.

Huh? My time was wasted when I thought I would get a free skein, so I guess I should have listened to a red flag warning…when something sounds too good to be true it probably is.

What a wonderful deal as I buy Caron all the time and nothing else because I love it so much, it is so soft. And the dye lot never changes on the ones I buy so I can always go back and find the same color. I will be sending off for my free yarn. I trust this company and know I will receive my free yarn. God Bless Caren

I already have more than 3 skeins of simply soft in my collection. So I will use that to get a free trial of some of their other yarn. Thanks for letting us know.

Thank you so much for telling us about this offer. I just found myself diving into my piles of yarn looking for my Caron skeins. I am with the other ladies here…I love free stuff and can never get enough yarn. Thank you so very much for sharing this with us.

I have received my free yarn. Really nice material and color they sent me.

(12) Tangible says:

This is great! I have some skeins now..so I’m sending in my labels for a freebie!!! I looooooooooooooooooooooove this yarn..woohoo.


To all the negatives…it’s a good deal…in the store a buy 3 get one free is a good deal for yarn skeins for projects…so is this deal. Be gentle to the bearer of good news. :) Go knit or crochet something and relax. <3

I saw this on their facebook page. They had stopped asking people to send in the 3 labels for the free yarn. Also they had to stop their promotion this past Friday because of the high demand. I received mine in the mail today, very soft yarn and a pretty color.

I received 5 free skeins of a very pretty color – all of the same dye lot! This was a great promotion! Thanks, Caron.

I’m sorry that I have to disagree,I have tried caron simply soft yarn and it works beautiful.The color collection they have are very pretty and it washes and dries nicely.Right now I’m in the middle of a project in the melon colr and it’s looking very nice.So people don’t judge until you try it.Thanks Caron I love your yarns.

(18) Michelle says:

Well if its a sample give away then why am I being required to first buy 3 skeins of their yarn first? I would like to try their yarn but I am not sure about buying a yarn that I have never tried first.
I will not be participating in this offer simply because I dont see it as an offer of anything.

Thank you
