Red Heart Buttercup Yarn

If you've ever dreamt about sleeping on a cloud (and I'm sure we all have), then you no longer have to dream about it. Red Heart's Buttercup Yarn is THE softest and fluffiest yarn you will ever encounter.

Made of 67% polyester and 33% nylon, this bulky yarn will quickly become your new best friend, along with baby's best friend. As I sit and stare at this yarn I run my fingers through it and it doesn't even feel like I'm touching it. If you close your eyes you won't realize what you're touching. This is a perfect yarn for babies to be draped in. From wearables like knit sweaters and hats, to knit blankets and blankies, this is the ultimate yarn for little ones.

While Buttercup yarn is super soft and cuddly, it's also quite stylish. There are tiny pom-poms blended with a fleecy yarn, which is what makes it so squishy just like a baby's cheeks. This yarn comes in an array of fun colors like Aqua Ice, Ballet Slipper, Carnival, Flirty, Sugar Plum, Teddy Bear and more. This yarn can be used by itself for an ultra-soft and bulky design, or it can be used as an accent piece like trim around a sweater or a pair of socks.

Because it's a bulky yarn, it makes your projects work up quickly, but it also hides flaws from the poms throughout, making this a nice yarn for beginners. I'm the type of person who doesn't like to undo what I just did, so if this yarn can hide a mistake, then I'm all for it!
