I got this for a pair of slippers I was working that were super bulky. It crocheted up super super fast and the color is BRIGHT BLOOD RED. It was even better when I slipped them on my feet - like walking on pillows!!
While I love that it is super soft and I know that a single ply will eventually pill - even after soaking 3 times!! and thinking it was okay...it stained my son's feet!!! And the color washed out so much it was horrible! Maybe this was only the black that I had, because the deep red didn't have any probs.... :P
