Customer Reviews for Caron® Simply Soft®:
I've used this yarn for years, it's my go-to yarn for kids' projects and afghans and yes, it does split easily and often, but I consider that a minor inconvenience and just slowing down helps to eliminate the problem. However, I have very hard water where I live, and if you don't use a water softener treatment in the laundry, this yarn will get pilled and very scratchy within just a few washing.
I have been using Caron Simply Soft for over 20 years. I love the softness and it is my go to yarn for afghans. I crochet and knit and I have never had a problem with it splitting/separating. I was so glad when Caron expanded their color line. This yarn is also a great value!
Yes, this yarn does separate/split occasionally, but if you're careful, it'll work out. Caron Simply Soft is THE best yarn, really really soft and has a slight sheen to it that's just wonderful. Works up so well and I love using it for all my projects!
I love this yarn. HOWEVER, it splits very easily.

CaronÂ® Simply SoftÂ® is the only yarn I use for anything that comes into contact with skin. Baby sweaters, booties, scarves, hats and afghans - only use CaronÂ® Simply SoftÂ®. It is easy to work with and the softness is just too good to the touch to be beaten by any other brand out there.
