Opinions on TLC Heathers and TLC Essentials for an afghan?
Hi
I'm thinking about using TLC Heathers or the Essentials for an afghan but was wondering how this holds up with time and washing and if it makes up to be a soft throw or itchy?

Thanks!

Before I answer with my opinion - LOVE your name, poodle! What's all this about?
I haven't worked with either one, but my mom just finished a Heathers throw, and it's not very soft at all. Maybe we need to break it in more, but I don't care for it. I don't know about the Essentials.

I bought some Heathers thinking I'd make an afghan out of it, but I ended up returning it. I found it to be really stiff and scratchy.
