These booties are very soft. They are made from nylon yarn which I have doubled so they are thick enough. They are from my favourite pattern of easy baby booties and the more I make them, the more I can see how useful but stylish they are. They are warm and homely. With different yarns and wools you can make all sorts of booties with this pattern and they are just perfect for a simple project which will fill in the time easily if you are stuck waiting or on a trip. They would match the baby beanie perfectly! These are 8cm from toe to heel so a bit bigger than newborn.
