I posted yesterday, but did not get any responses... so I'm trying again.
Anyone have the magazine? I really want to make the "suit". It is actually a strapless dress and jacket. The picture is on page 77. The yarn in the pattern is Lang Lyra which is a 46/50 silk/cotton blend. It is not readily available for me and way to expensive.
So... I need a substitute. I am guessing that I need to stick with a silk blend for drape and to keep the cotton from sagging.
Webs has Classic Elite Classic Silk on sale. It is a silk/cotton/nylon blend.
I also like the Frog Tree 30%sik/70% Pima cotton... is this too much cotton?
I have never used a bamboo blend, maybe this is an option instead of a silk blend?
Open to suggestions.
