Yes, very soft and seems like it would felt in about 5 minutes! I'll have to include a DO NOT WASH IN HOT WATER or use the DRYER label w/ my gift!
It's yarn imported from Japan.. I don't remember the brand name- I just know it's a merino wool and is 100% wool.
Not a color that I'd wear- but, I think it will be so cute on a baby. I might add some 'ear flaps?'
