Are you asking for suggestions on colors or brands of yarn? I can't help much on the different yarn brands (right now I stick with inexpensive stuff, LOL!), but I do know that lots of yarns used to make baby items now come in great pastel shades using white, yellow, and green, or sometimes white, yellow, lavender, and green; or some variation of those hues. Makes it simpler if you are doing it ahead of time and don't know whether to go with the traditional blue or pink. Personally, I think those color blends are prettier than the blues and pinks, anyway. ;)

Here is a nice 100% Merino Wool Handwash (http://www.theyarnco.com/brand_display/176).

I have had my eye on this felted machine washable tweed (http://www.theknittinggarden.com/ro-feltedtweed.htm) but haven't bought any yet.
