Mystery Yarn Stashbusters

A friend of my neighbor's found out I like to crochet. She mentioned they really need preemie items for one of the local hospitals. I'm thrilled to help because I like to donate locally as well as to different places across the country. She even brought me some yarn. 
One of the skeins she brought looked familiar. I dug through my yarn cabinet and found two more exactly like it. This yarn is soft and squishy, and it works up beautifully.
Despite having innumerable UFOs and WIPs that I should be working on (you'll see just how many tomorrow!), I spent yesterday and Thursday happily playing with this yarn. The two cocoons are the Bippity Bop pattern from Dly's Hooks and Yarns, and the three hats are from the Dainty Daisy, 
I have a couple more items to make, then I'll give them to my neighbor to take to the hospital. She told me the name a couple of times but I can't remember what it is. Gotta love baby brain.

Here's my problem. Does anyone know what this yarn is? I really like it and would like to buy more if it's still available.
It's a crinkly yarn similar to Lion Brand Homespun but much thinner, either a thick sport weight or thin worsted weight. Both the blue and the white have a thin string of white wound through them to give the strands more luster. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks for reading.
Have a super Saturday :-)
Blessings :-)
