Knots of Love for Baby Neonatal Blankets: Any soft and cozy yarn can be used for Neonatal Blankets. Size 18″ x 24″

To protect the health and well-being of our cap recipients, we have a few guidelines for people making Knots of Love cap:
• Must be new.
• Thinner, seamless, non-lumpy caps are good for sleeping and increased comfort.
• No see-through caps. (Patients don’t like to see their bald heads through the caps.)
• Yarn must be fragrance-free, smoke-free and pet hair-free.
• Must be washable.
• Must be made with yarns from our guidelines/approved yarn list.

Cancer Patient Approved Yarn List

Please use yarn from our tested yarn list when making Knots of Love caps and Neonatal Intensive Care Blankets.  All our yarns have been tested by cancer patients and families of fragile tiny lives. All yarns have been deemed soft enough for the extremely sensitive and often blistered bald heads of cancer patients and Mom and Dad's who swaddle their newborns.

* Some of the yarns have been discontinued. However they can still be found on-line or in some retail stores, depending on where you live.
