Customer Reviews
Caron® Cakes™ Yarn is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 296.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Texture, weight are unbeatable This is my FAVORITE yarn. The wool-acrylic blend gives pieces great stretch and durability, and the texture is just divine. It is soft without being "squeaky smooth" like some extra soft acrylics. It feels natural, which is one of my favorite things. Plus, pieces turn out far lighter than you would expect while still being cuddly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed! Decided to make a scarf with this yarn but one skein wasn't enough yarn. Second skein (bought at the same time) not even a close match. Same color name but doesn't match at all. Pretty much ruins the scarf. Oh well. If I use it again, I'll make sure it's a smaller project that will only use one "cake."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blueberry... Decided to knit a sweater with this. Used a larger needle than called for, but it's working out great! The effect is color blocking. Absolutely no one else will have one like it, as each cake is different. If you want unique color block effects, Caron Cakes is the yarn to use. I am amazed how soft and light weight this cardigan is turning out, and I am an XL.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to love this yarn.... I really wanted to love this yarn. The yarn was inconsistent in weight when it changed colors. I was making an afghan using the moss stitch and it went from a size 4 weight almost down to a 2 weight... I was really disappointed. In addition, when I first started out, the initial color was sooo soft, and by the third color it was so coarse it started to shred my fingers. The colors however were gorgeous. I had to take them all back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this yarn Perfect for one scarf. I knitted the honeycomb pattern for all my scarves as Christmas presents. Everyone loved them! They thought I alternated the colors.i tried to buy 1 color of each skein. My family were able to take 2 each home. My mom asked me for a couple extra so that she could give as gifts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Cost is Worth the Colors Pros: 1) This yarn is very easy to work with. 2) It reminds me of Red Heart super saver, but it is softer. 3) The color changes are fun and work extremely well for the prayer shawl I am working on. Cons: 1) This product is very similar to Red Heart Super Saver but costs 3 to 5 dollars more. I will say that it does have 19 more yards than Red Heart and it has 20% more natural fibers. Personally, the dye quality and softness is worth the extra cost for me, but most of the crocheting college students in my community flock towards good sales or the ever cheap Red Heart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Yarn I love this yarn. I love the colors and I have had many compliments on the blanket. The only downfall is this yarn is not stocked well in the stores. My store quit carrying most of the colors including the one I needed. Every shipment, they would not get any in, very frustrating. I called another one where my mom lives and they happened to have 4 so I was able to get my yarn I needed. Ordering online is great but ordering in sets of 3 is not ideal when a person only needs 4. Plus shipping to store should be free like other stores I buy from, that was new to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shawl pattern wrong I made the shawl pattern shown on the label which requires two cakes. I actually made mine slightly smaller than pattern and ran out of yarn. Trying to find one more of Boston Creme is a nightmare as it's an in store only color. I went through 10 stores in three states to get the color initially, now I can't finish shawl as I will probably not get another. Pattern needs corrected to three cakes. Had I known in the beginning I wouldn't have to redo this hunt for colors I previously purchased. Super annoying.
