Do you think the Palette yarn from Knitpiks would be suitable for a toddler/baby sweater? It's peruvian wool, but the same gauge as I need for my pattern. I've never felt it, so I'm not sure.

Hand wash. Shape to dry. I don't think these and baby sweaters go together. My opinion, though. I ordered the sample pack but I haven't got mine yet, so I haven't personally felt it, but generally this type of yarn is not super soft. Silver did a review of it here and a I believe she felt similarly.

Dale of Norway has some yarns that would meet your gauge.
