I knit a delightful pullover with this blue and I had terrific remarks about it. Can't ask for better than that. Some little boy will be warm and comfortable.
Soft and smooth with a nice weight. The colour is true to the photo and very rich.. It crochets up easily. As I'm just working on my project now, I'm not sure how it is going to wear.
Caron Simply Soft is my favorite yarn by far. It is soft, easy to crochet or knit and the choice of colors is amazing. The only negative is that it will wear fast when worn or used as cover for sofa or recliner.
At first when I received this order I was surprised at the Dark color of it as the color plate that I ordered it from was different in appearance. I checked Yarnspirations and their color plate matched the color I received. I also had thought about ordering Country Blue, but your color plate looks grey. Checking Yarnspirations again, their color plate is a blue shade. Now after looking at the Dark Country blue, I decided to keep it as I do like it, but also would respectfully suggest that the color plates be truer to the color offered. I very much like the texture of the Caron Yarn I received and will be ordering more in the future after finishing some projects I am working on. Sincerely.
This is lovely and soft yarn to work with. I made a baby blanket and sweater and they look great and feel so soft and cuddly. Very happy with this yarn.
Soft, easy to use with rich colours.
haven't used these yet but I'm breaking already. They are simply, superbly soft and the colours are true!!
Perfect blue for "you are my sunshine" blanket
