Nicest acrylic yarn?
In your opinion, what is the nicest, softest, easiest-to-work-with acrylic yarn? I have been trying different kinds for the charity squares and rectangles and am just not liking it. Vanna's Choice is my favorite so far.

I like Caron Simply soft. Lion's Woolease has a little wool, but is machine washable and it's pretty nice.

I like the wool for myself, but at least one charity rectangle request was for only acrylic. I'll have to check out the Caron's. Thank you!

I like simply soft as well, and bernat satin is nice.

I 2nd the Caron's Simply Soft! I've worked with a TON of acrylic (can't afford the finer yarns...lol) and out of all of the acrylics I have used, I think Caron's is the softest, and, very easy to work with.

And they're coming out with some nice colors with the Heathers. The shadows is pretty interesting to work with too.

They really do have some pretty colors. I was just looking at it on Joann's website. I like them because I get My Points.
