Developed by Donna Higgins, a yarn shop owner and co-owner of pattern distribution company Deep South Fibres, she felt there was a missing element in her baby yarn section. So she created Big Bad Wool and the gorgeous yarn Weepaca, a blend of superwash merino and alpaca.  Big Bad Wool Weepaca. CW from top left - Leaf, Butter, Raw White, Blue Eyes, Lilac, Pink Noses.

Weepaca lends itself so well to blankets as the yarn is so light yet warm. If you’re not sure on colour combinations then the Mini Purl Blanket means you can just choose your favourite and knit to your hearts content!

Also, you can’t get much more cuter than the Knotted Cable Cap! It only takes one skein (or just two for the larger sizes) and we love the little nubbin tie on the top to finish.

  1. I love all the colours. But for me the ‘mustard’ really jumps out. I’m going through a mustard phase at the moment. Maybe it’s all down the autumn colours as the leaves turn yellow in fall. I’d love the try this yarn out for a pair of fingerless mitts :)

  2. Ohh I love Tree Frog! I’d use it to crochet a soft edge of the balaclava I’m making myself to stop my nose falling off in winter.

  3. Those colours!! Wow. Better than sweeties any day. I really love the water colour, so bright and chirpy and I’d crochet it into a little snood to keep my whippet warm on these chillier autumnal days… X

  4. Beutiful colours! and what a great colour wheel blanket!If I have to choose one, I’ll go for Coral, but the are gorgeous together!

  5. I would definitely go with the Minty colour – so unusual and would be a lovely colour for a scarf with a big winter coat..nearly went for Girly Girl but thought I would stay away from pink for once!! ;)

  6. Difficult to choose – they are so beautiful – the pastel shades as well as the darker ones. I’d love Girly Girl for myself! However, as I have two boys, I would choose a lovely neutral colour for them – so Linen it is, please!

  7. Love the bright fushia Girly Girl pink! Would crochet a vivid pink rose corsage to brighten up my coat on those dark Autumn and Winter days!

  8. I could choose the colours just for the names … Pink Noses, Butter, Girlygirl, Fried Egg!- but I think my favourite colour would have to be Leaf, a lovely soft green.

  9. I like blue eyes, and pink noses, but I’m not certain if its just the colours or the way the names go together!

  10. I’d pick tree frog since my friend’s daughter is not finding out the sex of her baby this time so I need to knit generic colors.

  11. What a beautiful range of colours….I would chose Tree Frog, one because I love the name and two because I love green….it would make a perfect little baby hat….with a little knot on top.

  12. Leaf is calling me, with the idea that although I’d knit a warm cozy hat, I would so be thinking forward to spring, dreaming of warmer days!

  13. I would love a skin of “leaf” as I have just heard that I will become a granny for the first time in spring and from now on I will knit in every free minute until March!!

  14. Girly Girl, as the name suggests, the colour is totally feminine but at the same time would pack a punch as a knotted cable hat on top of my head!

  15. Hi, these colors have such a glow. They must absorb dye wonderfully. Well here is my pick- “Coral”. Thanks for the chance to win a skein, it looks nummy.

  16. I just posted Loop Knit Lounge on these new fibers to your store. I pinned the first picture on this webpage.

    • “Coral” is my color of choice. This is attached to the note on the first picture pinned to Pinterest.

  17. Hi again, you can tell how excite I am about this new yarn. I also pinned the second picture on this page, I love “Coral” in this new line.

  18. I hope this is the last comment I will make. I pinned a third picture, the last on this page, to Pinterest. “Coral” is my choice. Thanks for putting up with my mistakes in writing. I actually pinned the 1st, 2nd and last pics on this page as well as making a comment on how I feel about this new yarn!
    Thanks for offer of a free skein to a lucky winner!

    Fondly, Deb from MN

  19. These colours are beautiful. I would choose coral as that’s my favourite colour and I’d make something for my daughter Ronnie.

  20. Hmm. Teal? Charcoal? Love them all but I think probably Tree Frog is my absolute favourite. So nice to see such a choice!

  21. I’d definitely go for Teal – it’s the name of my favourite childrens’ TV character, from ‘Abney and Teal’. I’d make a lovely cosy hat out of it!

  22. the teal leapt out at me straight away as I love this colour – I would love to make a baby jacket in 2 or 3 colours, blue eyes and charcoal would be so delicious

  23. What stunning colours! Difficult to choose but I think Blue-eyes would be my choice. Thanks for the giveaway!

  24. I love all colors but my fav has to be “Stop” it is like a ripple raspberry ice cream color ….fantastic …and the blend! Merino and Alpaca my two best friends :) CONGRATULATIONS!

  25. It’s a toss up between Blue Eyes and Charcoal. Blue Eyes is gorgeous, but then Charcoal also is lovely *and* it makes other colours pop eg Water, Mustard . . .

  26. I wrote a comment on Facebook to let them know of this new line for you. I hope this helps you out with the promising new line. ‘Coral’ for me!

    Fondly, Deb from MN

  27. I hope you are anxious as I am. Today, I had a response to the picture (first one above) saying that this is a nice burst of color for babies. I have never gone so far as I have for this yarn, It excites me and will definitely want to knit with this yarn.

  28. For my lovely friend who is having her first baby. She is feeling very
    overwhelmed so I think I would knit a Mini Purl Blanket in Minty to calm her jitters

  29. Looks wonderfully soft. I love the colourcombination of the purl blanket…If I have to choose one colour I go for “coral”.

  30. This yarn looks so soft and snuggly, I’m sure its a dream to work with. I would choose pink noses to knit hat and bootees for tops and toes(es)

  31. Dreamcycle is the perfect shade for neutral baby knits. Ideal for gifts for those friends who decide to wait until birth to discover if it’s a boy or a girl!
