List of Suggested Yarn

Acrylic yarn is the best choice for NICU babies. No wool please! The following are examples of yarns that are soft enough for our babies. There are many other great yarn types and brands out there and this list should only be used as a "softness guide". To determine if your yarn is soft enough, rub it on the inside tender part of your upper arm.

**Indicates yarns that are light weight enough to be used to make bereavement and christening blankets and garments.
