The newest yarn in the Kristin Omdahl Yarns family is Be So Baby Yarn. It is a #3 dk weight, 100% milk (casein) fiber yarn. Each ball is 1.75oz (50gm) and 142 yds (130m). It comes in 15 gorgeous colors, from classic pastels to vibrant and energetic colors. There are several rainbow spectrums, as well as holiday themes represented with this palette, too.
You can order Be So Baby Yarn a la carte – each ball is $5.99. Or, for a limited time, you can buy a sampler box with 15 full sized balls (one of each color) for only $79.99 – a $10 savings!
Patterns coming soon – in the meantime, feel welcome to substitute Be So Baby yarn for any #3 dk weight baby pattern you love!
In episode 264 of Create Share Inspire podcast, I show all 15 colors in indirect, outdoor lighting and talk a little bit about color combinations.
You may be wondering what is milk yarn? Milk yarn is a bio-synthetic yarn made by dehydrating and skimming milk, then extracting the proteins. The proteins can then be liquidized and spun.
It is lustrous and soft, which are generally properties of natural fibers but with benefits of synthetics. It produces a strong fiber that is eco-friendly, hypoallergenic and feels great next to the skin. It is wonderful for babies, children and sensitive skin. It is also antibacterial and anti-fungal because amino acids are present in the fiber.
Yarn fibers are usually categorized as either animal, plant or synthetic (man made). Synthetic yarns can be further broken down into petroleum based (e.g. nylon, acrylics) or bio-synthetics. Milk yarn is a bio-synthetic and has been around since the 1930s!
