Gone are the days when we used to buy yarn to crochet clothes. Today we buy yarn to crochet as a hobby. Crochet or knitting is more than a hobby and we are all aware of its bundle of benefits.
Buying yarn is also a hobby of many and you can add me to the list.
Recently I made some purchases of Softy Baby Ice Yarns and, honestly speaking, one of the best yarns, though they are Acrylic, the quality is very good and soft.
