Has anyone ever used this yarn before? If so is it soft? I do not like red heart baby yarn I think it is rough. To give you an idea of what I mean by soft I like caron simply soft, however I seen a pretty blue sparkle color at Joanns.com on sale for $3. I was going to buy some and make a baby sweater and socks for my little cousin xavier who is three months old but I am leary that the yarn will be scratchy especially because its a sparkle. I noticed that even in caron simply soft variegated yarns or sparkles tend to be rougher than the other ones. hmm what does everyone think?
I have used this year for several baby hats, baby booties, and a sweater. I have been happy with the softness and how it holds up in the washing machine. My daughter likes it and the other recipients have also reported positive results.
