Soft yarns

Has anyone used the Herrschners brand of medium weight worsted yarn? Is it soft? I must order online and would like to find a less expensive soft yarn than Red Heart Soft or Love. I would like to try it but not if I just have to send it back.

RE: Soft yarns

I have not tried the Herrschners brand, but I am making a baby blanket for DD with the Hobby Lobby brand of I love this Yarn. It is ABSOLUTELY the softest acrylic yarn I have ever used (and I've used a lot!) in 45 years. To me, it's almost as soft as Alpaca. I don't know if you can mail order from Hobby Lobby or not.


RE: Soft yarns

Thanks Tami. I will check to see if Hobby Lobby does online shopping. Herrschners was nice enough to answer my email question on whether their brand was a soft as Red Heart Soft. They got right back to me and said it wasn't.

That is good service!
