I used Natural Fantasy Baby Camel. It was super soft. I bought it on ebay, 2 skeins (around 120 yards each) for $16. I used it doubled (fingering weight) to make a hat, unfortunately for me the style of the hat looked better on my sister, so I gave it to her. I like to remind her how lucky she is with her baby camel hat. If she loses it, I may have to find a new sister. From what I heard, it is really, really warm.
