I've bought this yarn several times for many projects. I've made hats, scarves, and a blanket using several colours. It never fails me. I will offer this one bit of advice, though: when you tie it off, do a really good knot, otherwise it will come undone over time. Use a lighter to melt the acrylic just a tiny bit if you have to.
This is the softest yarn it works up well. I use this yarn to make baby blankets. My grandson got a blanket he is twenty five it looks as good as the day I made it. It has been through 4 other grandchildren they all used it and it still looks great

Review 28 for Caron Simply Soft Yarn
BEST SOFT AND SILKY YARN AVAILABLE
By ConstantlyCrocheting ,
This is the very best yarn in the market for substantial yet soft and silky items. It is the very best yarn for scarves, hats, gloves, bed capes, chemo caps, chemo lap blankets and any baby item, including blankets, caps, booties and clothing. The colors are wonderful and it crochets or knits up beautifully.
I had to make allowances for the fact, while it's considered worsted weight, it is lighter and not as bulky as typical worsted weight is, it's worth the extra allowances for the softness and final quality look of the finished piece. I now have 2 "go to" yarns for most of my projects...Caron Simply Soft is one of them!
I love this yarn for baby items. Nice and soft and machine washable and dryer-safe. My local Walmart however only carried two or three colors white, beige and usually gray so I have to order it online. It is also never on sale.
I love this yarn and have decided to make it my "go-to" yard from now on. It is so soft and easy to work with and i love the sheen.
Unfortunately, I went to my local Walmart to pick up the items I ordered and they were sent to the wrong store. I bought what I wanted while I was there so it wasn't a big deal but its not worth the effort to place order and go to the store to get it. I'll just go and hope they have enough of what I want the next time I am making a large afghan.

Caron Simply Soft in "chocolate" "bone" & "off white"
I was making an afghan for my great-grandson for Christmas, and thinking about the colors I would like to use for his year-old sister, when I remembered Simply Soft. It knits up to almost the same gage as worsted weight, 4 ply yarn, but the finished product is so much softer. I am halfway done with Monica's afghan, and it is exquisitely soft, done in shades of pink and lavender.

Review 34 for Caron Simply Soft Yarn
Best price on Best Yarn
By operamartyc ,

This yarn is silky, soft an drapes beautifully and has a lovely sheen - it is also much lighter in weight than the Red Heart or similar worsted weight yarns. This is my favorite of all yarns and use it for everything from afghans to scarfs and wraps. Colors are gorgeous and this is the best price I could find in much searching. You can't go wrong in working with this yarn - full 6 oz skein is my choice for solid colors - two will make a very beautiful long scarf 9 will make an afghan. Best buy.
I really like knowing that I can purchase yarn online and have it shipped to my local Walmart. The best part is that Iound the exact color I wanted to make a prayer shawl for someone. This is a good yarn to work with and is very soft. Every timeI have ordered yarn from Walmart.com, someone took the time to match the dyelots on those yarns that have one, which is very nice indeed.
I love this yarn for nearly everything I crochet. Having used other brands, I find that Caron Simply soft to be ideal for afghans, baby blankets, throws, pot holders and garments. It's a 4-ply yarn that is soft, cozy and drapes well for afghan and baby blankets. Very soft, comes through the washer and dryer very well. Occasional splitting occurs while crocheting, but this is true of many yarns that are much harsher and not nearly as soft. I've crocheted three afghans using this and at least two baby layettes with it and love it for its soft quality and warmth. I don't knit, so I can't comment on knitting capacity, but for crochet items it has many colors to chose from and I usually purchase this yarn for my crochet items over other brands I've used. For baby items I usually use a smaller hook size than recommended by the manufacturer out of personal preference. Great product and Walmart has it at the best price I've found.
I only work with Caron yarn. It's very soft and it does not feel spongy like some other yarns do. I saved a lot of money ordering it from Walmart, I saved on shipping because I used ship to store. I am going to get all my yarn from Walmart. Nancy
