While I love the sheen of Caron Simply Soft, I am very displeased with the pilling/fuzzing. Additionally, I would not recommend Caron Simply Soft for tapestry crochet – or my skills are not as good as I think they are – because of the slipperiness of the yarn when it comes to hiding the ends.
I really need to stand by my pricing versus being desperate for jobs. I made this afghan bases on four times the cost of the yarn. Unfortunately, for me Caron Simply Soft is not that expensive, which was a boon for my cousin. I did not realize how much work time I spent on creating this from charting to finished tapestry crochet afghan and ended up charging approximately five hundred to seven-fifty less than what my time and skill are worth.
