Hudson’s Bay Baby Blanket Advice

Posted in crafty by Allie on March 12, 2012


Alright folks, I’m working on my Hudson’s Bay Inspired Baby Blanket, and I’ve hit a bit of a snag. I love the Philosopher’s Wool that I’m using, but the green is not quite right, and a little too close to the blue. I’ve bought some yarns that are better in terms of colour, but then they’re lacking in that woolly texture that I like in the rest of the blanket. What do you think? Do I favour colour or texture? Which colour do you like best?

    I’ll vote for texture — go Philosopher’s Wool! The other greens are beautiful too, but I’m big into the touch factor.

    I completely relate to your dilemma – I’ve been through similar struggles. I say texture, though, for sure. And it’s coming across beautifully so far!

    Definitely going to agree with the crowd on this one – stick with the Philisopher’s Wool! Texture is so important for your little one’s comfort.
