Charlie doesn't usually mix with non-wool yarns, but he doesn't mind sitting real close if it's Caron Simply Soft. Chief also loves it. I made him a Black and Orange afghan out of Simply Soft (mostly because I had a plethora of the colors and also because we live in Bengal territory, although 'Bengals' is kind of a bad word these days, but I digress...). Anyway, Chief likes that blanket the best of all the blankets I have made for him. I ought to show you a photo, I've never even tried to sell the design...it was just an attempt to use up the extra yarn.
