Hi Sara, I can tell you that I just finished knitting an outfit (halter top, cap, poncho & tube sox) for my 2 yr old granddaughter and it is EXTREMELY soft and yummy 100% cotton KnitPicks yarn "Crayon". I have spoken with my friend @ knitpicks who told me that it doesn't dry up as expected. Of course, bc it's 100% cotton
! But, she did tell me that it's wash in cold water, dry flat to dry & then run it thru the dryer on just air and it fluffs back up with no shrinkage. I will tell you that before I began knitting the projects that I knit a gauge swatch, washed and dried it and it remained the same. But, I was told customers have complained that it shrinks when put in the dryer....lol, as does any 100% cotton, I would think...I am amazed that my swatch didn't shrink, but I did put it on low and left it in for only a short time.
All this said to tell you that it's really very, very soft and knits quite nicely and has wonderfully bright colors for kids.

...It would look oh so cute in blocks of color like my granddaughter's poncho, which was made of 2 rectangles of mitered blocks of color. I'll see if I can find one to reduce for you to see
