Is there any difference in these two? Want to do a baby afghan and when I looked at these two they seem the same. Has anyone used V C Baby?

Hi, wondered that myself!, Possible the,baby is softer??? Maybe the color offerings??? I've used, and enjoyed both!

The only differance I could see, is the baby says it is all 100% premium acrylic, and the 'choice' says there may be rayon and small amont of other. Weight is the same. They may be referring to the colors.

Baby is softer than Choice, though they are the same weight.
They work well together in a project, so you can utilize the colors of both.

I have used both of these yarns and the only difference is the colors. The "baby" yarns are typically baby colors.

I have used them together many times in projects and they are identical.

Like Linda said... they are both made of "100% premium acrylic" but SOME of the Vanna's colors have some small amounts of other fibers added.... I suspect this is for the flecked or variegated colors of the Vanna's Choice.

I don't like Lion brand yarns because they split while you're working with them. Vanna's Choice is especially guilty of this.

I just made the Cottage Creations Rambling Rows afghan, baby size for my great grandchild due in July. I used up what I had of Vanna`s Choice, both regular and baby. It all went together fine and I could see no difference. I used 5 colors.

Different techniques...I have found that Lion Brand Vanna's Choice is the only yarn that doesn't split on me. Go figure.

I just finished the Ruffled Shrug free pattern from the Lion website which uses Vanna's Choice. I didn't have a problem with splitting. I did use bamboo needles, so maybe that is it? The yarn worked up wonderfully, I thought.

Wow, I have not had this issue with Vanna's yarns either and I use them alot...both Baby and Choice. I am currently making my first knitted sweater with Choice and it is working beautifully, thankfully! :-D

I haven't had any splitting nor ANY problems with the Vannas Choice or The baby one either. Perhaps a too sharp needle or a "bad batch"?! That is really odd... I love the stuff!
Used Vanna's Choice for this sweater I knitted recently and it was wonderful to use and LOOKS like I used much more expensive yarn in my opinion
