Enjoy Knitting With Caron Yarn From Spotlight

You'll love the famous Caron yarn cakes for all your knitting and crochet projects! At Spotlight you can find a great range of high-quality yarn in the Caron collection, with fantastic colours and textures available to suit your needs.

Caron yarn cake materials

Caron yarn can be made out of a few different material blends, with acrylic being a common ingredient in all. Here is a quick rundown of how these blends function:

  • Acrylic: Pure acrylic yarn is smooth, light and durable. Because it is a synthetic material it is easy to wash in the washing machine.
  • Acrylic/nylon: adding nylon to the mix makes acrylic yarn extra stretchy.
  • Acrylic/wool: Adding Caron wool to the mix makes acrylic yarn denser, more textured and more breathable.
  • Acrylic/cotton: Adding cotton to the mix makes acrylic yarn softer and airier.

Caron FAQs

What is a yarn cake?

A yarn cake refers to when yarn has been wound into a round 'cake' shape with a flat top and bottom that keeps it steady. Yarn is pulled out from the centre of the cake and its flat shape keeps it from rolling about, like it would if the yarn were in a ball or skein.

How to keep a yarn cake from unravelling

If you are worried about your cake unravelling, use a bobby pin or a hair clip to secure the end of the yarn to the cake itself. You can also use a small piece of tape or a rubber band to secure the end, but keep in mind these may cause the end piece of yarn to fray slightly or fluff.

What ply is caron cake yarn?

Caron cake yarn tends to be either 8 or 20-ply.
