Hi Everyone !!!!I'm sooooo excited that Christmas is comming. I really want to knit this monkey for my sister but I need help substituting the yarn.This is the pattern : http://www.save-on-crafts.com/motoymoknpru.htmlAnd I usually purchase my yarn at michaels, walmart, zellers !!!!!! Those are the only yarn stores were I live.Does anyone have any idea what type of yarn I could use for his body? I think it's asking for sullivans purple twist? Anyone have any ideas?ThanksChristine
Yarndex can be helpful in finding substitute yarns. You can search by fiber and gauge to find another yarn that is similar to the one they recommend.
Hihe yarn was discontinued in 2005.I have a pic but i have never seen yarn that looks like that befor,. It`s eyelash but looks very thick. Anyone see yarn like that befor
it actually looks very similar to yarn i recently found at big lots for $1 a skein. they don't have a great selection of colors, but it is very similar. how wide is it?

I wonder if using bernat boa would look nice? it's not as long as the other one though....
On yarndex, you can find eyelash yarns. Just look in the description for long eyelash, though I think any eyelash would work for it as long as it's fairly thick. If I were you, I'd just go to the store, and look for a long eyelash.
