The Spool Cotton Company started selling Red Heart yarns in the U.S. as Chadwick’s Red Heart in 1936. Red Heart became known for its value and quality over the years. In order to bolster sales, they began selling pattern books in 1942 for 10 cents apiece. In 1952 Red Heart developed the innovative tangle proof pull skein and adorned he tail with a Red Heart charm.

In 1955, after the formation of Coats and Clark, Red Heart changed its name to Coats and Clark Red Heart. In 1959 Red Heart produced their first acrylic yarn gravitating away from the wool products. In 1987 Red Heart Super Saver hit the shelves while also launching no dye lot solids.
