Sometimes Red Heart® is the BEST!
Most of my knitting friends abhor knitting with any synthetic fiber. And 100% acrylic is DEFINITELY synthetic. And Red Heart is an old-time, synthetic stand by.
But if you are wanting to knit something INDESTRUCTIBLE, and SOFT for a baby and his/her new mom who can't be bothered with hand-washing and blocking,
RED HEART® IS the BEST!!
I was happy to discover that my local JoAnn's carried all 17 colors of Red Heart®'s "Pound of Love"!!
