This is yarn that they have made a crochet scarf w/fringe.
It mentions Caron International's Fabulous. etc.
That isn't the same as "Caron Simply Soft" is it. Below is what they call for. Sorry I tried to post a link for the pattern, but couldn't.

Materials:

•Crochet hooks size US J/10 (6 mm) and K/10.5 (6.5 mm), or size to obtain gauge
•Caron International's Fabulous (100% polyester, 165 yds/152 m; 1.75 oz/50 g ball): 3 balls in # 0015 Mother Earth
GAUGE
Using size US J/10 (6 mm) hook, in hdc: 10 sts and 12 rows = 4"/10 cm

Caron Simply Soft is NOT the same as Caron Fabulous:

I clicked on this link and all I could get to come up was Caron Simply Soft. Where is the Caron Fabulous?

Look again. On the left side of the screen is all the different types of yarn that Caron makes, including Simply Soft. On the right side of the screen, it says Fabulous in big gold letters.

While on that page, you can click on Color Card, Free Projects or Where to Buy. Here is the link to color card:

I can't find the Fabulous yarn. I found the big gold letters, "FABULOUS" and it said by it, buy now. I clicked on that and Caron Simply Soft comes up. No mater what I click on Simply Soft comes.

THAT is Caron's page for that yarn...PERIOD! To view the colors available in that yarn, you click on the Color Card. To find out who sells it, click on Where to Buy.

I'll just have to check with Joann's and see if they carry it. I doubt it tho.
I found the color I wanted on the color card, but no where to order any.
I only have Joann's to buy yarn. All the other stores are too far from me.
I'm giving up and will find a substitute.

Sorry. I didn't mean to sound so abrupt. It is obvious that I need sleep...badly. What I was trying to say was that, like it or not, that is the page Caron has posted for that yarn.

I hope you are able to find another yarn that will work for your project.

Same thing happened to me. But a bit of googling found this. . . hope it's what you're needing.

a project made out of it. . . . http://janevdoviak.blogspot.com/2006/02/caron-fabulous-scarf.html

Maybe you'll need to contact the company to order it or find where you might find it locally.

Sorry -- I didn't realize that it isn't the style you wanted. Since it does say that "Fabulous is a narrow ladder yarn," and that's the name you gave us, maybe the company could help you? Maybe what you want isn't actually the variety of yarn called Fabulous by Caron, but one of the fabulous Caron yarns? Maybe the pattern designer could clarify? Sorry we haven't been able to help you here.
