I want to start work on a project that suggest Rowan's Magpie Tweed.
This yarn is discontinued. I am not sure it was ever sold in the US under that name anyway. In any case Rowan also sells an Aran tweed that fits the bill - but honestly I can not afford $16.00 bucks a skein. Thats 160.00 bucks for the project :shock:
But I really do want to use a good quality yarn for this project. Does anyone have any suggstions for a less expensive yarn?
I have looked at the WOTA from knit picks - but I saw some dispariging remarks on this forum about it. I have their sock yarn and its fine for my needs. Is the WOTA yarn similar in texture? I dont find it scratchy in the least. But I would hate to order it and have it be yuck. Also the WOTA is not available in a tweed. I will settle - but I do so love tweed!
