I am planning out a baby blanket for a friend of mine who is due in late October. My question is this - is wool or cotton better for a baby blanket?
I want something warm but I am worried that a baby's skin would be irritated by wool. Cotton seems like a good second choice but the blanket won't be as warm and I don't like knitting with it because it's not flexible like wool.
And I was thinking either Knit Picks Swish worsted (superwash merino) or Shine worsted (cotton and modal).
What do you guys think?
