Name of product:Lion Brand Polar Spun
I tried and I tried. This yarn doesn't want to slide against itself. It might work for knitting, but it did not work for crocheting. I even tried to use a large hook thinking: "Larger holes, more room for the yarn to move through", it was still a nightmare.
On the plus side, the colors were lovely and the yarn was very soft, which were the reasons why I bought it. Being stubborn and refusing to let it beat me, I used it all up in a huge shawl and it has held up well. The cats love it. Even though they can't help kneading it, there is little damage.
I have since learned to knit, so I might try to knit some up. However, crocheting? Never again!
I haven't seen this one in a while, but I have seen others like it lately in a major craft store chain.
