A super afghan to make for your gramma or grampa in the nursing home. It will keep them toasty warm while easy to wash and dry, too. These acrylic yarns often times plump up and soften just a little after washing and drying them. If you are concerned about getting extra softness there are ways of doing this on your own. Many tutorials can be found online. I think you can soak it on some kind of soap solution, if I remember correctly.
