Getting to Know Baby Soft Yarn

Baby Soft yarn and the Short and Sweet Child’s Cardigan in progress.

Baby Soft comes in 26 colors (solids and prints) geared toward tiny humans. The yarn is soft and easy to care for, which covers the two primary concerns when making for babies and kids. At a CYC #3 / DK weight, Baby Soft easily works up into stitches sized perfectly for newborns through kids garments. Of course, it will also work up into lovely adult-sized items in a Spring/Summer palette as well.

What You Get

Baby Soft comes in large 5-ounce (4-ounce for prints) balls of 459 yards (367 yards for prints). A single skein is enough for many baby sweater projects like the Short and Sweet Child’s Cardigan or Swing Set Cardigan.

The 100% synthetic yarn (a mix of acrylic and nylon) is machine washable and dryable, just don’t use an iron!

A Pastel Rainbow of Inspiration

The many colors of Baby Soft encourage you to get creative with pairings. Because there are so many variations of shades (for example, there are six different pinks) you can make “baby girl” and “baby boy” items in classic shades of pink or blue or mix and match with other tones.

With so many colors to choose from, projects like the Rock the Casbah baby blanket can be customized perfectly for your little one. Select your favorite four colors using the color picker located on the product page!
