I have many preemie hat patterns that call for DK yarn. I'm curious about which brand most of you use and why. :)

I use several different baby yarns, which are sportweight or DK. Some are softer than others, but they all turn out nice.

WOW! Thanks so much, Sandy! I've been using Bernat Softee Baby almost exclusively and wanted to try something else for a change. But since the yarn is going to be used for the tiniest preemies, I wanted to see what others are using so I don't buy something that the NICU's can't/won't use. Thanks again! You're a peach! :muah:
