Fixation yarns are the perfect solution for knit/crocheted items for wee ones. The yarn's ability to stretch (give) a bit so as not to confine the baby's delicate skin, nor pinch or leave indentations yet retain its shape makes for beautiful crowns, headbands, hats and caps along with items even for pets, (cowls, scarves, etc).
The available colors range from soft pastels to bold and bright. Feminine to masculine, as well as neutral too.
But don't just limit yourself to knitting with this yarn for infants, babies and toddlers - hats for adults always feel perfect - not like they're beginning to squeeze your head after a short time. Fixation yarn is my favorite yarn now- I just wish my hands could work as fast as I dream of the next projects I want to make from Fixation yarns.

Easy and fun to work with, I thought I would love wearing the nicely patterned pair of socks I was able to knit with just two balls (200 yds). However, the fabric created felt so uncomfortable on the bottoms of my feet - even in plain stockinette you begin to feel every stitch. I knit two pair, just to be sure - and I truly would not recommend this yarn for socks! In case you absolutely must knit socks, a couple tips: be careful not to stretch the yarn when knitting (it's quite elastic) and be sure to dry your socks on sock forms or they dry quite misshapen.

    Comments about 5.50 Fixation:

    I LOVE this yarn, easy to knit with (do NOT STRETCH it out while knitting, leave loose, so it will knit up with stretch). Don't have babies to knit for, but this would be GREAT for them. Stretchy, comfy, absorbs perspiration, ALL of my summer socks are made of "FIXATION", and I love them !!! I wash in the machine, in a bag, so I can pull them out, and NOT send them to the dryer. I just hang them over a towel rack, and they dry great!! No shrinkage! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE FIXATION !!!!!!! Needs 10 stars out of 5 !!

        I am making a short sleeved sweater for myself but I'm thinking that hats and baby clothes would work out beautifully too. It feels almost like terry cloth. Very soft and cottony.

                    I use this yarn to knit infant and children's hats. The yarn is especially nice for infants bc the gentle stretch allows the hat to stay on. I knit hats for premature infants at a local hospital and the floor nurses prefer this yarn over all others. It is very soft and does not bleed or shed plus it stays on.

                        Great for knitting clothes for dolls as there is enough stretch to knit a jumper or dress without having to allow for a fastener so can be knitted in the round and then just pull over the top of the dolls head.
