Caron Simply Soft Yarn Review with Shade Guide

Caron Simply Soft Yarn - one of my favourite yarns to use for blankets. 

So soft in your hands, it glides so smoothly while you work up your project and it has the most amazing gorgeous colour shades. 

Once you have tried out this yarn. let me know your opinion in the comments below.   

It is a weight 4 yarn, 100% Arcylic Yarn and falls within the Aran / WW weight section in the standard yarn weight groups.

Yarn Weight 4 Symbols 

Caron Simply Soft comes in 170g Skein (315 yards / 288m) 6oz.

Leave the yarn label in place and feed the yarn out from the centre.  Great for Intarsia projects as your yarn stays still.

It is a NO DYE LOT yarn so no need to buy more than you need "just in case".  This is perfect,  if you are like me (I am a several projects going at once girl) because in two years time the new yarn skein will still be a great shade match!

Other Notes

I have heard Caro Simply Soft yarn is not for all knitters and crocheters, if you hold a tight tension then this yarn may not be for you as it tends to untwist around your fingers which causes the yarn to split.
