Baby yarn is designed for use of babies, or people with sensitive skin.  This is going to be much softer than normal.  That way is soft for the touch of the baby.  You wouldn’t want something scratchy on you newborn that is why most people who make baby blankets etc. use the baby yarn.

Sock yarn is primarily used in the making of socks, of course. Everyone loves to wear warm cozy socks in the winter.  It is great to have some nice homemade socks that you love during the cold days.  Sock yarn is normally light in weight and can be made in a number of different materials.  It is made with a mixture of fibers that allows the sock yard to be more durable and hold up. 

One of the most unique types is the hand dyed yarn.  This can come in a sock yarn or a baby yarn.  It is full of color and a lot of people like this because of how bright it can be.  Some people like to use this type for hats, scarves, and even gloves because of how many different types there can be hand dyed.

There are many types of yarn out there now days, and all of them are unique and wonderful.  One of the great things about having this many types of is that it allows your imagination make magic.
