I would like to make the “suit” in the spring 2007 Vogue Knitting. It is actually a strapless dress and jacket. The yarn called for is Lang Lyra 46%cotton, 54% silk. I would like to subsitute a different yarn, but want to make sure I don’t end up with a dress that stretches out and falls off.
I have been searching at yarn.com and found and Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool which is a 50/50 merino/silk blend. Also Frogtree Pima Silk 85% Pima Cotton/15% silk.
Any suggestions which is a better route to go?
