Searching for the perfect hat yarn .....
I am planning to knit a hat and scarf for my five-year-old little boy. He wants it to be blue (navy would best match his jacket)

He is super sensitive to anything "itchy" or "scratchy"

He has admired the nicu baby hats that I have made out of Wendy Peter Pan Tinkerbell, and Velvet Touch. Also, he liked a baby hat I made from Sirdar, Snuggy Bubbly. These are all super soft, polyester yarns. I am currently making a hat for my daughter with Wendy Peter Pan Tinkerbell, but the yarn does not come in any boyish colors.

I had looked at Polar Knit Fleece online, but I read that it can be difficult to work with. I am a new knitter, so the reviews I read made me shy away.

Any suggestions for something super soft, that comes in colors other than baby colors?

Thanks!

Caron has some nice colors, and its soft. Bernat too, and I believe both have nice selection of colors, even navy. I'm sure there are others, it mostly will depend upon your budget. My suggestion is go to a yarn store and feel. ^.^

Thanks, Ladies.

I think I will try Berroco Plush Colors. I have not seen it (or felt it) in person, but it looks nice online.

There is a nice yarn shop nearby, but even when I tell them that I can't use wool, they keep leading me to wool yarn. The owner kind of turned her nose up at me when I asked about Wendy Peter Pan.

Idiots.... Guess you'll be buying it online. Or if there's a Joann, Michaels, Hobby Lobby near you, you might find something else suitable.
