Lots of places have it listed as a pale pink- if you google some of the doll patterns, they tell you the color and type of yarn they used. That may help.

I discovered that the winter season is actually the best time to find those colors. Sometimes they are " labeled" under the category if " fishermans".
I'm told this is considered " a winter yarn" . Sounded silly to me. I take a knitting class at my LYS. A fellow knitter was looking for a " flesh color" for an edging. This is what we were told.

I often see pictures of dolls knitted/crocheted using this color of yarn on the "Pictures" section. You might want to check with one of them as to where they buy their yarn :~). There's one there today under the title "meet nicki."

Don't mean this rude, but what color do you call flesh? reminds me of my biracial niece doing some coloring, my sister asked her about the colors, then asked her "what color am I ?" tiara looked at her, thought about it and said "peach"... We still get a chuckle out of this.
Really, what do you call flesh, light, medium, dark, we come in all colors..

I've found that a lot of doll patterns don't specify the skin color. Probably because there are so many options.

I found a yarn called apricot that fit my vision of what colorI wanted. Only it was too expensive. Later found a beige with a pinkish blush to it. That's what I'll be using. The yarn is Bertaini Relax & is a DK weight.

I have Bernat baby yarn that I use to make doll faces. I get it at Walmart, when you see it stock up thoughts it is hard to find as you know.

I remember reading on a site that the designer suggested a Vanna yarn; she said it seemed to her to be the best for skin tone. Of course, it depends on whether that would meet your weight requirement--not to mention what shade of skin tone you need . . . . I think I have the site saved somewhere--will see if I can unearth it.

Found my reference:
It was in a "Base Amigurumi Pattern" and she said "I prefer Vanna White's Beige yarn for all skin tones, as this is the most natural looking skin colored yarn I have ever come across." (It's on the web at http://geekcentralstation.blogspot.com/2011/06/base-amigurumi-pattern.html if you want to see the pattern.)
