Welcome to B.hooked Crochet’s Yarn Review Series, where you can learn everything you need to know before making your purchase!
In our latest episode, I would like to introduce you to Red Heart Baby Hugs, the newest member of the Red Heart Yarns family. What makes Baby Hugs so special? Well, it’s the only yarn on the market that has been tested for and is free of over 300 harmful substances, and that’s pretty cool in my book!
Red Heart Baby Hugs is available in two different weight categories, light and medium. This opens up many opportunities for us!
I can see myself using Baby Hugs for more than just baby projects. There are 18 different colors to choose from, ranging out side the spectrum of pastels. Pairing that with the simple fact that it is certified free of harmful substances, I see this yarn also being used for children or adults with sensitive skin or allergies. Red Heart really did a great job with this new addition! Have a closer look at Red Heart Baby Hugs in my yarn review.
