This is a full half page add in the 1953-54 issue of McCalls Needlecraft. In case you can't read the small print, the gest is ... knit a piece with Royal Crest Yarn. And then finish this sentence ... I LIKE ROYAL CREST YARNS BECAUSE ..... in 25 words or less. Then, mail in your entry. Enter as often as you like.
There are 31 prizes ranging from a 1st prize of $500 down to $10.00. YOU CAN'T Lose, because whether you win a cash prize or not, you'll discover Royal Crest Yarns will save you money!
I did my typical Google, newspaper and book searches and came up with only a couple pictures. Apparently the yarn was not a big success. Here's three that I did find.
Royal Crest - Moonlight
Royal Crest - Petite Royal - 1 oz skeins, 75% Virgin Wool, 25% Rayon
Royal Crest - Royality Yarn
I'm sure I'll find more in other magazines as I go along and will come back here with any other details.
Thanks for dropping by.
