Caron Cakes yarn

Recommended Posts


Joann's yesterday and saw a yarn similar to the cakes but a different brand. I can't remember the name or brand


That would be Premier Yarns Sweet Roll cakes:)



I saw these cakes at my local Walmart!!!!  CARON CAKES AT WALMART!!


That was probably Lionbrand Mandala cakes.  The Mandalas are DK weight and all acrylic.

I picked up two of Phoenix.  Very pretty colors.  Love their names.

They are in select Walmarts right but supposed to be in all/most mid summer.  Here is a map to see if they are near you:




Also Bernat Pop cakes in some Walmarts.  It is acrylic and worsted weight.

Note the Bernat link goes to Ravelry as it is not on their website yet.


Hope that helps some. :)

Hobby Lobby Yarn Bee is joining in on the cakes by adding Sugarwheels soon.  Here is a sneak peek at a pattern sheet that has the colors at the top of the PDF as well as a few good looks in three finished projects:

Premier Yarn has another one, called Candy Shop with fun names like Skittles, Twizzlers, Jolly Rancher, etc.  It is self-striping that changes from solid to marbled.

From what I understand; Cotton Cakes and Baby Cakes are on clearance or possibly gone from stores.  They are gone from the website.

Caron does have new cakes though.

Tea Cakes.  A wool/acrylic blend with heather effects.  80% Acrylic, 20% Wool.  Super bulky (6).
