Review: Anne Geddes Baby Yarn
In a word, this yarn is great. It was a real pleasure to work with. It’s labeled “Baby” but we don’t let that limit how we use it. It’s a fabulous yarn for baby and adult items alike.
According to the Red Heart website: Red Heart has partnered with iconic baby photographer Anne Geddes to make this wonderful yarn. It is a perfect blend of acrylic and nylon that makes it super soft and just the right weight for those special baby things. You’ll love the color range and the adorable patterns!
Light Weight: 340 yrds / 100 g
80% Acrylic and 20% Nylon
Anne Geddes Baby Pros:
- Bright and bold color selection. Seriously, babies look cute in all kinds of colors, not just pale blue and pink!
- Smooth texture glides across fingers nicely. Because it is light weight, it hardly feels like it’s there, especially on the tension finger.
- Soft yarn
- Has a good twist, so doesn’t split. Can’t emphasize this enough; it doesn’t split!
- Has a medium sheen – not too shiney or too dull
- The lighter weight is nice for projects where smaller stitches and drape are important, whether for baby or not.
Anne Geddes Baby Cons:
- As in most lines of yarn, we long for more colors. Seriously, babies are drawn to bright colors, so why aren’t most baby lines more colorful?
