What is The Best Yarn for Baby Blankets?
I get this question a lot and the answer is that it depends on the family you are making it for! Ask them what they prefer in a yarn, if there are any allergies and their pick of color.
There are so many choices, brands and fibers so you will always be able to find a good match of yarn for your gift. I prefer using soft yarn that is washable for baby blankets and linked up one of my favorites below.
Below the blanket & lovie patterns have a variety of different yarn brands that were used. I linked them all up so you’ll be able to see the fiber content and the color choices that are best for you and your client.
I hope you enjoy this roundup! Happy Crocheting.
