Product Description

Baban, named after the Welsh word for Baby, is a beautifully soft yarn specially designed for knitting baby projects. 

The yarn is perfect for new born babies who have the most delicate skin. Made from the finest nylon and premium acrylic, the yarn is not only super-soft but also practical.

Why choose an acrylic-nylon blend yarn?

Soft: Comfortable and very soft, acrylic-nylon yarn is ideal for garments that will be worn close to the skin.

Durable: Acrylic yarn is strong, long lasting and can be machine washed. When blended with nylon, it has extra stretch and resistance to shrinking and wrinkling.

Colourful: Acrylic yarns are often available in a wide range of colours and the hue doesn’t tend to vary too much between dye lots. Also, it is dyed in large batches so it is easier to match dye lots.

Easy knitting: Easy to work with, acrylic yarn tends to keep its shape, while the nylon gives it extra elasticity. If you make a mistake, you can unravel your stitches and start again without ruining the yarn.

Non-allergenic: Because the fibres are synthetic, the yarn won’t aggravate allergies.
