Ok, so I have a pattern that requires the following yarn (Berroco Air)
FIBER: 78% Wool, 22% Nylon
BALL WEIGHT : 1.75 oz / 50 g
BALL LENGTH: 115 yds / 106 m
GAUGE: 3.25 sts = 1"/ 13 sts & 19 rows = 4" (10cm)
NEEDLE SIZE : 11 (US) / 8 mm
CARE: Hand wash in lukewarm water. Lay flat to dry.
Now, I’ve found this other yarn, that is pretty cheap, and I’m hoping I could maybe use it…
(KnitPicks Wool of the Andes)
Content: 100% Peruvian Highland Wool
Amount: 110 yards/50 gram ball
Gauge: 4.5-5 sts=1" on #6-9 needles
Are they similar enough, or would this be a no go?
Also, has anyone used this yarn before? Is it any good?
