New and beautiful plant-based yarns are now made from bamboo, hemp, soy, and flax. I find that these fibers are best blended with animal fibers or cotton for baby knits, because the mixture seems to enhance their drape, insulation properties, and loft. For babies I prefer 100% merino wool or a blend of fibers, such as the Debbie Bliss and Rowan yarns that combine merino wool, cashmere, and microfiber. This mixed yarn can produce a strong, durable garment that holds its shape, is easy to care for, and is exceptionally soft—perfect for little ones!
