Best Yarn for Peach Colored Skin on Amigurumi Crochet Dolls

Hi fellow crocheters,

I've been asked quite a number of times which type of yarn I'd recommend for the skin of my dolls.  For my dolls with peach skin, my favorites include:

Caron Simply Soft

I previously used only Caron Simply Soft in peach, but found that the peach is now frequently becoming out of stock.  I'm not sure if it will be made unavailable in the future, but I'm prepared if that's the case!  

Brava Worsted

Brava Worsted from KnitPicks is another great (and very affordable) choice. I actually prefer it more than Caron Simply Soft, because the Cream color has a softer look.  It's also easier to work with because the yarn itself is less "splitty", so I highly recommend it and it's my go-to yarn for doll skin now!


Below are some doll examples using Caron Simply Soft's "Light Country Peach" color.

Here are the dolls' pattern pages, from left to right:

Here is a doll made using KnitPick's Brava Worsted in "Cream" color.

This is the Unicorn Pixie pattern, which is free on my blog.  As you can see, this shade of peach has a softer, more delicate look than the dolls above. 

I'll add more to this post when I find additional peach yarns that I love!  For now, I'd love to know what you think of these yarns, if you've tried them out before.  Do you have other flesh-colored yarns that you'd recommend?  Let me know in the comments below!

Thank you for reading, and I hope you all have a beautiful day~

Warmest wishes,
