What To Do With Caron Baby Cakes

Caron Yarns has just launched a brand new yarn line exclusively at Michaels Stores called Caron Baby Cakes. It’s a spin off, due to popular demand, from the Original Caron Cakes. Crocheters and knitters requested Caron Cakes be in non-wool materials, especially for baby, so they have removed the wool and substituted with nylon. So this yarn is 82% Acrylic and 18% Nylon.

For Canadians, like me, just keep an eye on your local store. 

Caron Baby Cakes are not only different materials of Caron Cakes but are also coloured with beautiful hues of colour transformations within a ball. Each ball colour has been carefully decided based on today’s trending colours and mother’s personal choices when it comes to baby projects.

Myself, I got to see a few yarn swatches of this yarn myself. I got to feel the yarn. I think babies and mothers alike with LOVE this yarn choice for a baby blanket.
