Mantis shrimp come in stunning color combinations, but don't take your eyes of their specialized smashing legs. They can punch with the force of a rifle bullet and they use their power to subdue larger animals like crabs to eat and also to break the glass in aquaria. Since there are no actual mantis shrimp included with the yarn, it is perfectly safe to use it for a baby hat or booties.

This fine yarn would be wonderful for anything to be worn next to the skin. Merino yarn is amazingly soft, and won't even make a baby itch.

This is a multi-ply worsted weight yarn.
Fiber: 100% Merino
Yardage: 140 yards
Weight: 50 grams
Needles: US 6

All of my yarns are unique and dyed one at a time with non-toxic dyes.
