I had this skein of Deborah Norville Everyday Soft Worsted yarn in my stash. I had gotten it on clearance at Hobby Lobby. It is the most wonderfully soft acrylic yarn I have worked with. It is a 3 1/2 oz/180 yd skein. It is super soft but a little pricey for such a small skein, $4.99 but it was marked on clearance for $2.99. This hat is very soft and has a nice striping pattern. It would be nice for a sweater if you don't mind paying the price. I do so I won't be buying it unless it is on sale or clearance.
