I'm looking green, self striping Aran in wool blend or something similar.
It's for a jumper for a 5yo and a matching one for their fav soft toy so it needs to be easy to wash but still comfortable and breathable.
Has anyone seen anything that fits the bill?

There's plenty on Wool Warehouse to choose from.

You won’t get matching garments for child and toy from self striping yarn.
The maths means that what will stripe on a kids jumper will not stripe the same on smaller items

I'll have a look on wool warehouse.

It doesn't need to be identical, just the same colours.
I was thinking self striping as I'm not a particularly skilled knitter so I thought it would make a very plain and simple pattern look a bit more interesting.

What about this?

There are a couple of green colour ways. I know it’s not stripes, but looks interesting.

BTW I had a look on WoolWarehouse and didn’t see “plenty of yarns” that fitted your criteria - Caron Cakes had the only ones that were close....
