I made these for a baby girl on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. It is very,very cold there so I used wool not acrylic for these items. I love working will wool so I plan to make some more warm things to send her. The socks are made with Wool Ease that I had left from making a hat. The striped hat and mittens are made with a superwash wool I got in a swap. It is German and I cannot remember the name of it, the whole label was written in German, the only thing English was "superwash". And the purple sweater is made with Moda Dea Superwash wool that I got for a dollar at the dollar store.
