About Gold thread and acrylic yarn

Caron Simply Soft is aptly named, and is really soft to my liking. The one here is autumn red and is 100% acrylic, machine washable and dryable. Ideal hook size that can be used is size 5 mm H-8 US. This is made in USA with imported fibers.
The Red Heart Fashion Crochet thread is 93% mercerized cotton and 7% metallic.
The ideal size hook to be used is 3.25mm and size D-3 US.
Can be machine washed with a gentle cycle with warm water with no bleach and to be rinsed well and rolled in towel and blocked. The thread is Gold and is made in India.
The best cotton in my experience are those manufactured in India.
Hope you enjoyed this little know how on yarn...
Lots of love


  1. Oh sorry. Saw the Made in India label only now. Where exactly is it available.
