If you’re in the market for a new yarn for sweet baby things, then look no farther than Baby Soft Boucle. This super soft, textured new baby yarn is perfect for last-minute baby gifts, because it works up so quickly. And with a palette that includes the traditional pastels, plus some fun neutrals and muted bright hues, it’s ideal for the millennial mom. For 7 fun baby projects, plus all the details about this new yarn of ours, read on.
This 100% polyester yarn ensures no irritation for sensitive skin, and easy care – machine wash, lay flat to dry. In addition, polyester fibers don’t wear down as quickly, so pieces will withstand all the small adventures they’re taken on. Each skein weighs 3.5oz (100g), and measures 120yd (109m), so there are several projects you can make with just one! It’s a 5 Bulky weight fiber, so the nubby texture of the boucle will be squishy and stimulating. It also comes in a dozen colors, so you can definitely whip up something any baby & mama will adore.
Insider Tip: Wind yarn and / or work from the outside of the ball!
