Bernat Softee Baby is so easy to work with and creates a soft fabric that just caresses delicate baby skin. Can't beat the softness and drape!

Lovely feel to Softee Baby.

Because one of my best selling patterns is made with Bernat Baby Blanket. :)

Bernat Softee Baby is wonderful to work with, and it creates a beautiful fabric that gently caresses a baby's delicate skin! I love the softness of this yarn!

I have been working with the bernat baby blanket and have fallen in love with it along with everyone who see's how soft it is. I just wish that there were more colors to chose from cause some people would like to have a blanket made from it, but don't want the baby colors.

I love Bernat softee baby working on baby blanket in Bernat Baby Jacquards love it

I can use the Softee baby for so many projects.

Baby Blanket is so soft and bulky so it works up nice and fast. LOVE IT!

I love the softee baby yarn, so smooth and easy to work with.

I love the nice soft, thick feel Bernat Baby Blanket yarn gives to a blanket. It is so easy to work with too either crocheting or knitting. I love all of Bernat yarns though!!!

I haven't used the Baby Blanket yarn yet, but I'm dying to. This one was a hard choice, because I love the Softee Baby, and it can be used in so many styles of afghans. I'm not sure about the Baby Blanket, but I love how soft it is, and I love chunky yarns.

Baby blanket is very hard on the hands to work with, it just doesn't seen to give like Softee Baby .

Soft baby is so easy to work with, but I love the feel of Baby Blanket more. The secret to using Baby Blanket is using a large needle or a loom. My choice is Baby Blanket.

I love working with the Baby Blanket yarn. It makes wonderful baby blankets and many new parents love them. I've got a friend who's daughter wont use any other blanket to snuggle with but this yaRN

My hands don't do well with bulky yarns, but I enjoy Softee Baby for baby things as well as doll clothes. I wish there would be a worsted weight equivalent to Softee Baby. Another, unnamed ,yarn producer has just come up with one...Just sayin'!

#yarnmadness! Feels so nice when it runs through the fingers.... it is an aha moment for me!!!

Softee Baby is a joy to knit and crochet with.

I love the Baby Blanket!

Softee Baby! Softee Baby! I adore this yarn. SO soft, and the finished items are just precious. I just wish it came in primary shades as well.

Softee Baby is easy to use, soft and comes in a variety of wonderful colors. I also like the price and the long lasting quality of the yarn. It is not irritating to babies.

I love, love, love Softee Baby yarn!!! I also wish it came in a wider variety of colors. If it did, I would probably never purchase any other yarn! Just saying.............I'm addicted to this yarn and the lovely feel of the finished product! More colors PLEASE!!!!

I use Softee Baby all the time. I just love it. It's so soft and nice to work with.

Softee Baby gets my vote.

I use Softee Baby. The preemie babies that receive the blankets we make at Threads of Love have very tender skin and Softee Baby fills the bill for softness.

I may be a bit late, but Softee Baby is a very soft versatile yarn and comes in many wonderful colours.
