    I’ve seen a couple questions about substituting different yarn, but I’ve found to get the best result you really want to use the Bernat Blanket yarn. When I tested these balloons out (https://youtu.be/DCZBI5VXnpc), I found even a knock-off polyester yarn similar to Bernat Blanket was far inferior when it came to absorbency and softness. Another thing I’ll add, in case anyone is wondering, is older kids seem to enjoy these too. In the link I’m sharing, I tested these out with kids ranging from 3-12, and even the older ones had fun playing with them. Hope this helps anyone who still had some questions!

    Has anyone tried making these with sugar and cream cotton? That’s what I have on hand and hate to make a trip to the store and spend $10 if I don’t need to. Thanks!

    Hey Jeanne…you.re famous…on the internet!! Cute grandbabies. A friend of mine is sitting on the driveway crocheting water balloons and selling them. I thought I would check it out to see how challenging they are to make and your name popped up. Cool beans.

    I think I will be making these for the “differently abled” folks I work with …. easier to hold on to and no parts and pieces to clean up 🙂

    Would it work if we used regular 4 worsted acrylic yarn?
