For a while now, Caron’s Simply Soft yarn has been my go-to acrylic. When you’re picky about textures (scratchy yarns need not apply), it’s great to have a staple like this one that works up well, is readily available, and won’t break the budget if you need a lot of it for a project.
I just can’t pass up pretty variegated yarn in a rainbow of hues. This colorway is called Tapestry, and it’s even more fun in person.
I haven’t yet decided what my skeins of this will become. They’re kind of begging to be made into a gift project for a baby girl, like this adorable knit baby sweater. I also saw a version of the honey cowl made in this colorway, which creates a very cheerful accessory for a solid-colored shirt. Other pattern suggestions welcome. 🙂
Any opinions on this yarn, or on working with acrylic in general? Although I have been working with yarn for a long time, I have only recently begun exploring options other than the acrylic types that are easy to find in stores.
