That scarf is awesome! I find that some super saver yarn is amazing and some is just crap, I just have to feel it all I have been making a lot of things over the past few months, here are my latest two blankets!
Use the "With love", it is a little softer, plus it worked or will for the hat I just finished. I just started another one using a different brand, and it's a bit thinner of a 4, but it's super soft. I check tonight and let you know the brand name.
There is one brand at the store (not yarn store nor craft specific), I think Caron? That stuff seems super soft, but also quite pricy. I would love to find some more natural selections, but I think I would have to go and find the one yarn shop in the county.
Or I could by the reflective yarn! I bet that would be striking!
We have some amazing yarn shops here in Spain (I love the brand Katia), but I've seen a lot of blogs and forums where people order their yarn online. It's apparently even easier and cheaper to do from the US. I love both projects!
I just found the wrapper from the yarn I was talking about. It's Lion Brand Yarns: Heartland. It's really soft, and pretty easy to work with. I have already started my second hat with it. I hope this helps.
I like simply soft but it gets fuzzy easily (not that all yarns don't), and I have also had LOTS of uneven skeins, either fraying or large texture issues within the skein. Not always a great yarn. I like red heart soft a lot better than simply soft
I think I will visit the yarn shop. Need to find some nice soft yarn for some beginner projects for my girl scouts. I want them to learn how to crochet (maybe knit as well) and have some easy projects with charitable goal for them: Making small blankets for infants, then maybe more involved stuff like hats or booties...so far we are still working on chain stitch though....anyhow, I want something as fat as Super Saver, but softer, and in baby colors....you would figure that would not be such a tall order!
