What To Do With Caron Cotton Cakes
Caron Yarns just launched a new yarn to compliment their collection called Caron Cotton Cakes. We got to see one sample and all of the colour shades a few weeks back prior to release. Daniel was floored! Daniel LOVES the finer things in life, being the Diva he claims to be. This yarn is exquisite and cannot believe it’s part of the Caron Yarns line up. He’s a type of Diva that wants champagne on a beer budget. Meaning, he loves finer things but loves great prices even more!
This is not dishcloth or tea towel cotton. This is yarn intended for fashion. Once you see it, you will see the difference of regular 100% cotton verses this yarn. So do not use for this for your dishes or kitchen needs. It’s not designed for this purpose.
Myself, the colour combinations used are really perfect representing a beach theme. The beach glass colour is my favourite of them all. For myself, I haven’t seen a full ball yet and I am dying for my local Michaels to get this in stock so I can see it and fill up my basket with options.
The yarn is a mix of 60% Cotton and 40% Acrylic. It has a sheen to the yarn. It is also not conventionally spun to give a top quality look. Speaking bluntly, once you see this yarn, you are not going to believe it because it’s high end yarn looking for everyday crocheter and knitter prices. Priced at only $4.99 USD. It’s so hard to believe as I have spent way more on yarn that looks like this quality.
The yarn will glide through your hands like BUTTAH! It’s pleasure in every stroke of the hook. Most Michaels Stores will have this yarn for a limited time. It’s for only $4.99. It’s expected to fly.

Comments on “Caron Cotton Cakes”
I plan to used my Caron Cotton Cake on the rigid heddle loom. I just warped on a Caron Cake to make my daughter a scarf. It was a challenge, because the acrylic fibers stick together. I know the cotton will be different. So, wish me luck on this project.
They stopped making Cotton Cakes, can’t be found anywhere and been told it is a seasonal thing 🙁
I’m in love with this yarn and bought up all I could find. I sure hope they bring it back.
You cannot order this yarn from Michaels and they are running a clearance sale in the stores. Is this the end of this ysrn? I will be very fdsappointed if it is fiscontinued. Thought you might have some insight into this.
Michaels has stated on their social media that this yarn will be back next spring. Other than that, we have no official way to know their plans.
Help! I’m going to make a chevron pattern cardigan cal and it calls for 3 colors. I want to use the beachglass but what on earth would come close to the texture of the cotton cake? Hmmm
I would really really really love to be able to get 6 Caron Cotton Cakes Rose Whisper but I am in Australia & they aren’t available here yet. Any idea how I could get them with not to expensive postage. Thanks will be forever grateful if this could happen. Michael’s don’t send to Australia which is such a shame
Wish the Caron Cotton Cakes & Caron Baby Cakes were available in Alberta , Canada …..
NO such luck here ??
Was at Michaels and was told they’re NOT carrying them ??
Not a happy “hooker” at the moment as I’m always looking for cotton or arycliic yarns with the self striping effect
Chère can se bit pour produits. I live in Sorel-Tracy, Qc.
Could these be used along with either the original cakes or the baby cakes?
I don’t think so, the cotton is a much thinner yarn. I absolutely love it!
An avid learner of your Tutorials. I currently reside in Australia. How/ Where could I possibly purchase the Caron Cakes line of fine yarns. There are no stockists here. Thank you for your time.
I hope to find some of these soon. I think they would make lovely scarves woven on my rigid heddle loom!
Just bought All the cotton cakes they had at my michaels. Hmmmm keep looking at it all 10 of each color. Love it , what in the world am i going to make ? Everyone its awsome !!!!!
