    1. I just bought the normal Yardley brand yarn available in the nearby local store.. Some yarns were soft whereas some were rough. In older times, when my mom used to crochet, the yarns were of good quality but i couldn't find any good yarns nearby nowadays.. I guess it would be better to order online:)
