What do you all think?
 
I had to make a comment when I saw people commenting on Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino. You can get SO hooked on this stuff. When I started my preemie outfits to donate to the hospital, I wanted something really soft, and, of course, being at my LYS, I picked this stuff. Now I can't get away from using it! Although last time I worked it out math wise, I think it would cost the same. (Now I am curious, so all of you will know too!!...hang on)

2 outfits out of Debbie Bliss (an outfit consists of hat, booties, and sweater)
3 balls (400 yds) 30 dollars (cdn prices)

2 outfits out of Bernat Baby Softee
1 ball (400 yds) 5 dollars

Ok, so I was wrong. But I can't justify the baby softee cause it just isn't soft enough!! What do you all think? Is it better to go more expensive for this sort of thing? And what about the sensitivity of the babies' skin?

thanks
Katy

Wow, I didn't realize it is machine washable. I shunned that sort of thing because I just assumed it wouldn't be machine washable.

Oh man... I might have to buy some. :shock:

I just double checked, and it is machine washable! You just have to make sure to dry flat.
