I have made two baby blankets and one sweater with Bernat Sheepy Yarn. I love the softness of the yarn. It is a thick, heavy yarn, and I typically use a 6mm crochet hook so that the stitches are tight. It is expensive yarn, as one big ball of Bernat Sheepy is 149 yards, which is the same price as a 220 yarn ball of Bernat blanket yarn.
-very soft and fuzzy
-cute baby colors available
-expensive and not a lot of yardage per ball
-cute baby colors (white, pastel pink, pastel blue, light grey), but no selection of brighter or darker colors
I bought this yarn from Michaels, which gives this info about the yarn:
