Cotton Skin Color Yarns for Crochet Doll

Cotton Skin Color Yarns for Crochet Doll

I have been received a lot of questions about yarns, mostly about skin color yarns for my crochet dolls. I think I already answered about the yarn that has both acrylic and cotton.
But a few months ago, I asked a question on my page about which brand are you using, and I have read some helpful answers, and then I decided to switch to 100% cotton yarn.
I have been trying to test as many yarns as I can, and finally, I found perfect yarns that fit 100% of my style.

I want to share with you my 4 favorite skin tone yarns.

First, the most frequent questions, the peachy flesh skin tones. I am 100% go to Scheepjes Catona 255 (Shell). It has enough pink, orange, yellow in it, and plus a little shiny from mercerized cotton, so it gives me the perfect look for my dolls. Let’s meet my Hazel doll. Her skin color is Catona 255.

Second, let’s say about Catona 502 (Camel) and Catania 437. They are both tan to brown skin tones, but Catania 437 is a little darker than Catona 502. Both are my favorite, so I will use Catona 502 for a brighter tan, and Catania 437 for a darker tan.

And the darkest skin tones, from brown to black, I would go for Catona 157 (Root Bear). Same as other mercerized cotton, even it’s a dark tone, but the doll still looks so bright and perfect with a little glossy skin.
