after working with wool for a while it starts feeling softer and softer… then you go to knit with arcryllic (I’m making a top down raglan baby sweater using Caron Simply Soft) it feels really plasticy and almost makes you want to grind your teeth???
The only reasons I’m using the Caron Simply Soft is 1. i already have it in my stash (trying to weed the arcryllics out), 2. It’s a baby sweater, meaning lots of spitting up on it, lots of washing it out, and 3. I’m going to be selling it (and a few other things… going to get them made first then set up an etsy account and have a stock pile to go for the craft fairs next fall).
I can’t wait to have this sweater done, this stuff’s awful (which is funny since i used to love it, i’ve even made sweaters before using red heart super saver!) but I don’t know which wool would be good to use in the future… the reviews i’ve read said that the lion brand wool-ease pills pretty badly after a few washes (any second opinions??)
