This yarn knits up really well. It is very, very soft. Some yarns irritate my skin when knitting for a long time, but this never does. It is machine washable and dryable. The baby blanket I made from this yarn has been through the wash many times and still looks new. It doesn't seem to get damaged, shrink, or get crackly after being put in the dryer.
The center pulls always seem to work well and don't get as tangled as some other brands.
One con: If you are not careful sharp needles do split the yarn when knitting (so you only knit half the strand). You do have to pay a little more attention. Bamboo needles have fixed that problem for me though. I have not had much splitting when I crochet with this yarn.
I did want to make a note about the color. I wanted a dark blue color for a hat for my grandfather, and the photo for "Dark Country Blue" seemed a little lighter than what I had in mind. But when I read the reviews, another reviewer said that they had ordered the Dark Country Blue and it was far darker than pictured and their project came out all wrong. What turned out to be a disappointment for them worked out great for me. I ordered the yarn and the color was exactly what I wanted. Rather dark - but not quite navy. Gave the hat to my gramp in the hospital.
I've purchased the yarn in several other colors that are true to the colors pictured.
I would give the yarn itself 4-Stars as it's easy to work with, soft to touch and has few to no broken/cut yarn in the skeins. I can't find any yarn brands now that do not have cut, broken or tied yarn in many of the skeins. I've only found one skein of the many Simply Soft Yarn skeins I've purchased to have broken strands and that was the Soft Pink.
If you have seen the yarn prior to purchase and know what to expect as far as color the 6 oz Skein is a good value. Just know that some of the colors pictured may not be accurate. In the future I will order only one skein of a color I've not seen in person before purchasing large quantities for a specific pattern.
UPDATE 4/8/2014: I have now started on a 3rd skein to finish my project, and *this* one has numerous places where black yarn (I'm using Autumn Red) is tightly wound around the yarn (anywhere from 1/2" to 1") as I'm bringing it up! I've had to carefully cut it away where I could, but some is just too tight against the red yarn. I tried to access the Caron website listed on the label of the yarn, but it won't come up and there is no phone number that I can find.
