Red Heart Super Saver ??

Are there any of you who have experience with this yarn? Will this RHSS soften up? When I finally wash it and rinse with Downey will it be as soft as the Caron SS. As I am working with it I am thinking there is no way I would want this rubbing up against my skin. Is the splitting normal? Does it "feel" to large for the recommended hook because it is so stiff? Should I just keep going and see what happens?
I have never used RHSS before so I don't know what to expect. I am a die hard Caron customer, but they just don't have the colors I am looking for lately and the RHSS varigated is such a yummy color.

I dry mine, though only on medium.

Do you have your receipt? Can you return the yarn and get something else?
I do wish Caron SS would come out with the pretty varigated colors that RH has---the watercolor is nice looking; I just can't stand the feel of the RH, but that is just me personally; I have sensitive skin.

I have washed that square three times and soaked it in Downey for an hour. It is still scratchy.
Try adding vinegar or baking soda to the wash. Try washing it in Dreft. At this point, what have you got to lose?

I use Woolite, cool water, and Downy.
Then the delicate cycle on the dryer with a dryer sheet.
I do not dry it all the way. I take it out when damp and let air dry the rest of the way.
Hope this helps (Fluffy)

Back to RH, I am sorry that you don't like the feel of it. Maybe you would be happier with Caron Perfect Match WW. It tends to be slightly softer; however it is still not as soft or lightweight as Caron's SS.

When the stitches are tighter and single stranded it is itchier that when it is doubled up... My blanket is definitely softer than what it was originally... but it is still holding up ok. I actually made one out of the same color with a solid against it... came out very nice.
