A pleasure to work with, super soft and smooth and won't break the bank. Frogs nicely when needed. Really all I could ask for with my project.
Overall pleased with it. My daughter is a new knitter and loves it. Super soft. The only down side is it splits slightly. So make sure you use a good pointed needle.
It's very thin, almost like a number 3. I thought it was going to be a little thicker. I'm a totally blind crocheter, I can feel the stitches but its hard to because there so small. I would by this again, very easy to use. It is more silky then soft. It looks beautiful when using it though.
A very reasonably priced yarn that works up beautifully in any project that I’ve used it for. Works well for baby items, afghans, slippers, toques, etc. It is definitely my go to yarn.
I crochet and love using the Caron yarns, but the black does not feel as soft as the other colours and it does separate more often. Sutekh, my cat loves it...he gave it five paws.
Love working with this yarn, great for blankets and stuffies. Wonderful colors and great stitch definition. Does tend to split a bit when crocheting, but not that big a deal.
Wonderful to work with.
Nice and soft yarn, the black colour is as dull as shown in the picture
