Cygnet Pure Baby yarn review

Ocean, one of my favourite colours, I love a good blue/green and this yarn completely ticks all the boxes.

The Rose think a proper dusky pink, the depth of this is lovely.

The Cream is a creamy cream, sometimes yarn they can be yellowy, beige cream, but this is a creamy cream. (For a beige cream look at biscuit in this yarn)

The Pastel blue – a great baby blue colour, so light and airy.

You can get this lovely yarn, and support a small business from heading over to SnuffleBean Yarn

Premium Acrylic

And this really is a premium Acrylic. It feels amazing, and was an absolute pleasure to work with.

Not “Squeaky”, and the shine on this yarn was lovely.

Anti-pilling DK.

One of my bugbears of any yarn, is that you make your great creation, and in no time at all it starts to felt/ pile (the bobbles that appear after a few wears).

This yarn does exactly what it says on the label – and it is Anti-pilling.

Sold in 100g balls, these are a huge 245m per ball, so even thought slightly more that a standard DK this is definitely worth the extra pennies.

Colour wise, there are currently 12 to choose from, “standard” baby colours, in pinks, blues, yellows.

I’d love a Darker Grey, and a Mustard, as I see myself making things for me in this yarn – it’s too good just for babies!

Basically – this has now turned into my new favourite yarn!

I love it so much, I’ve already ordered 15 balls of Biscuit from Snufflebean Yarn to make myself a cardigan (new design coming soon), and have a play with a blanket idea I’ve had!

So – do you want to see what I made this time?

One thing I always try when being a designer is to fully use the yarn, by this I mean – there is no point buying a whole ball of yarn when you only need 3 more rows – so sizing was cruical for this project.

4 balls pretty much exactly – as this is all you should have left over!

That was a yarn chicken win!

This blanket is the perfect pram/ stroller blanket size – so any colour combo could be used.
