Thanks, McKnitty I searched for just the right yarn b/c it has to be very soft and non-scratchy - yet stand up to washing and the inevitable (I hope!) wear from being dragged around by a toddler.
It's Crystal Palace Bunny Hop - suuuper soft, 10% angora and 90% acrylic/microfiber blend, tightly plied so I think it'll wear well, and can be (gently) machine washed. Highly recommend it, and feels good to knit with to boot. I bet it looks great in baby wear!
I got some pink this weekend - am going to start on a modification of this pattern for a bunny
