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. Loop, London. www.loopknitlounge.comLoop stocks all 23 colours from the softest pastel shades to retro brights. With such a cohesive palette, the colour combinations are endless.

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. What an amazing range of colours. I would love a skein of fried egg and I would use it to add a crochet edging to a plain blanket.

  3. Love Minty – but then Dreamcycle is equally dreamy… hmmm! …& then there’s Koi… Oh I love ’em all!

  4. Charlotte Powell says:

    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.

  5. Paula says:

    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

  6. Jam says:

    Tree Frog– green is my go to for baby knits, nicely gender-neutral, but still kind of soft and cheerful.

  7. Fiona K says:

    All the colours are gorgeous but I think “Water” is my favourite ❤️

  8. Ines says:

    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!

  9. Janine Bowers Wild says:

    I would love a skein of Blue Eyes to make a hat for my little girl. It’s gorgeous!

  10. Lucie Meagher says:

    I think I would go for ‘Stop’ as something a little festive!

  11. mrs robinson says:

    Such sweet colours and lovely names! I love the delicate pink noses…

  12. Susan says:

    Ooh the choice is almost too hard! Think it would have to be plum.

  13. Christine says:

    I’ve never done cables before but I think a skein of Mustard would inspire me to try that hat!!

  14. Ellen Andresen says:

    Plum! For a hat :-)

  15. Sue says:

    such a fab range…but Blue Eyes for me,little hat and booties for a friend’s newborn!

  16. 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!! ;)

  17. Vicky says:

    Water is so cute and bright. Would be great for a little person’s hat.

  18. Sophie says:

    I would use the raw white and butter for a lovely garter stitch stripey baby cardie

  19. Andrea says:

    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!

  20. Dorothy says:

    Gorgeous! Definitely a drop of ‘Water’ to quench my thirst to make one of those adorable wee hats!

  21. Helen says:

    I love koi. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness.

  22. Alison B says:

    Just one? Really? Blue Eyes. No, Minty. Final decision … Teal before I change my mind again!

  23. Joanna Hamilton says:

    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!

  24. Susaie Blake says:

    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.

  25. André says:

    It would have to be Dreamcycle for me as I’m really liking that colour at the moment along with any peachy cream.

  26. Sali Morris says:

    Water would be perfect to make a hat for my baby boy for winter, although all the colours are gorgeous.

  27. Melanie Atkinson says:

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

  28. Deb says:

    Definitely Blue Eyes – its lovely

  29. Layla says:

    The Teal has caught my eye- it’s beautiful. I feel some mittens coming on!

    Charcoal for me… Pretty please! :) thank you for hosting this great giveaway!

    My favourite is Dreamcycle, such an apt name for a dreamy shade of yarn!

  37. Sylvia Jordan says:

    I love the soft pink nose colour. But I wnt them all. Ha! Gorgeous colourways.

    Thanks and hope I win!

  38. Merry Fenton says:

    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.

  39. Jan Nairn says:

    My son and his partner are having their first baby I’d whip up the knotted cable cap in Bleach White for them x

  40. Jacinta says:

    Ooooh lovely yarn, I think the mustard would make a gorgeous hat to brighten up a winters day:-)

  41. Di says:

    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.

  42. ana julio says:

    Plum! I love it!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  43. Amy says:

    Ooh the coral is such a beautiful colour!

  44. Anett says:

  45. Jane Simants says:

    “Minty” is just calling out to be knitted into an ice-cream baby hat!

  46. Joanne says:

    So beautiful, I think “Ashes” would make such a chic little coat for a wee man about town.

  47. claudia horner says:

    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!

  48. I would like to knit in Girly Girl please because my brother’s youngest daughter is expecting a girl and my brother currently has five grandsons but no grand daughters!

  49. It would have to be Water I think.

  50. Lyndsey says:

    Would love a skein of Stop, perfect for the bubba I’m currently incubating

    Lovely colours. For me it would have to be teal I think ….

  56. Andrea B says:

    They are all beautiful colors. I’d have to go with my favorite – water

  57. Sally Simons says:

    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!

  58. Janet Friel says:

    Pink noses – my favourite colour and name!

  59. Brenda Johnson says:

    Tree Frog “hops” out for me. Hope I’m lucky!

    Coral. Im a yarn snob. I will be checking this all out….beware!

    Fondly, Deb from MN

  99. Donna says:

  106. Sandie says:

    I’d have to pick Ashes…something neutral for my baby due in February!

    Fondly, Deb from MN

  114. Angela says:

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

  115. Tammy says:

    They look like my favorite sherbet colors!

  116. Amy Wilson says:

    Canoe or ashes!

  117. Anne G says:

    I would choose Water – turquoise is a favourite, and Water is such a bright, encouraging colour for a little one.

  118. Anne MacKenzie says:

    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)
