The Yarn

I love the soft fuzziness of this Bernat Forever Fleece. You don’t usually get a fuzzy yarn like this that does not have wool in it. The pink and white yarn is perfect for a new little girl.

There are other color choices too: blues, greens, grays, lavender, mustard, and more. The colors are soft muted tones to go with the softness of the yarn. There are a few multicolored yarns too.

I found this super bulky yarn is easy to work with and consistent in thickness. It was easy to wrap up into a ball.

The other yarn I used for this project was the starting point for me. I used Lion Brand Go For Faux yarn for the border. I have been wanting to add a furry border to a blanket and I thought that these two yarn worked together well.

You will want to wash this blanket before giving if you make a baby blanket. Faux fur yarns tend to shed.
