I'll 2nd Caron simply soft.
also, I've been using some stash I inherited from my Mom, most if it is Red Heart. while it is nasty to knit with, it softens nicely when washed. I'm doing small projects like baby hats so the knitting w/it isn't dragged out long like an afghan would be. Not sure I could stand it for a whole afghan.
