I use it for scarves and hats all the time, and it works great. It's just good if you need something worsted weight, at an affordable price, and washable. It's much softer than most acrylics, and very afforable if you need a lot of something. I can't say I'd like an all-acrylic sweater or socks, but for things like hats, scarves, baby items, blankets, etc. I think Simply Soft is a great choice.
