Choosing baby-friendly soft yarn

While browsing the adorable baby crochet patterns, be sure to choose a yarn that's super-soft for a little one's delicate skin. Look for yarn with the OEKO-TEX certification like Bernat Baby yarns. These yarns are made of substances approved by the OKEO-TEX standard certification that is free of any harmful chemicals and substances. You can also choose a yarn made of cotton or a nice cotton blend that will feel cozy and super-soft. Bamboo and alpaca yarn are other super-soft options. Washable yarn is ideal since you can expect mom to wash your new creation quite a bit.
