Red Heart Soft Yarn

Soft is Red Heart‘s all-purpose soft yarn that features an ultra soft hand and subtle luster and is made of 100 percent acrylic material. Red Heart Soft yarn comes in 48 beautiful colors and is appropriate for all projects, from hats to throws, accessories to garments, and everything in between.

We recommend using a 5mm (H-8) crochet hook with all Red Heart Soft yarn. This is because it is a medium (or worsted) #4 weight yarn. It you can’t find Red Heart Soft yarn, you can replace it with Red Heart’s ‘Soft Baby Steps’ yarn instead.
