what about using a varigated peaches n cream cotton or acrylic? There are a lot of simply soft acrylics and various blends available. I remember mine growing up were poly/cotton...

best of luck

Maybe some self-striping sock yarn? That way it will be superwash, and you'll have lots of options to choose from. Lion Brand has their Magic Stripes, which is a DK weight and comes in all sorts of colors.
