Most of our patterns require at least 2-3 strands of 8ply yarn. Check each pattern for more specifics and options.
Please note that “fuzzy” yarns or those with sparkles are not appropriate for any of our items. Fuzzy yarns tend to shed fibres and young babies may ingest these, causing gastrointestinal distress.
Any crocheted or knitted items must be checked very carefully for loose threads that babies may chew on, and possibly choke.
That said, if you are making an item to assist with fundraising, we are open to all sorts of interesting yarns!
