Save the planet one stitch at a time!

Every 10 skeins of Simply Soft Eco saves 6 plastic bottles from U.S. landfills. Simply Soft Eco is a yarn from Caron International that blends 80% of normal Simply Soft fiber with 20% of a specially processed fiber produced from recycled plastic bottles.

Simply Soft Eco is soft to the touch, easy to work with and environmentally friendly. It can be used in any pattern that uses worsted-weight yarn. Just like your favorite Simply Soft, Simply Soft Eco is soft and lusterous and creates wonderful knit and crochet projects. An added designer feature of Simply Soft Eco is that a number of colors have flecks randomly dispersed throughout the yarn. These flecks give these colors a unique designer appearance that is usually found only in higher priced yarns.

So make all the throws and sweaters and baby blankets you want and save the planet at the same time!
