What makes this yarn so special is the slow transition between colours. And the colour palettes are so attractive, they actually look like birthday cakes, there are 18 colours in the range to choose from.
We have not tried this yarn yet, but, Mikey from the Crochet crowd, describes the new yarn as; made with “Premium Acrylic & Wool Blend” for this reason the Caron cakes yarn is very SOFT.
The price in US Dollars starts at $7.99US per ball. Considering this is a reasonable price for a 200g ball of yarn. The cost is very reasonable, if you live in the US, but, to have it available in Australia, the cost would approximately be between, $15.00 to $18,00 per ball.
We are just as anxious as everyone else to get this beautiful yarn in stock, but right now, it can only be purchased at Michaels Stores in the US!
