So I am making a blanket and ordered about 10 of the Drops Nepal (Yarn Group C). Now, I messed up, because my pattern also requires a navy blue color, which they do not offer.
All of the other yarns in the same bulk group may have navy, but are completely different yarn. I don’t want anything too synthetic, does anyone have a suggestion for where I can find a similar yarn, offered in navy. Any assistance would be appreciated!

Here are the details of what I am using now:
[INDENT]Material: 65% wool, 35% alpaca
Yardage: 1 ball = 50 g = 75 m / 82 yds
Needle size: 4.5-5.5 mm (US 7-9)
Tension/gauge: 17 sts x 22 rows = 10x10cm (4"X4")[/INDENT]
[INDENT]DROPS Nepal is a lovely, chunky luxurious yarn spun in 35% alpaca and 65% wool. The mix accentuates the softness of alpaca and the wool contributes to the garments’ shape stability. The quality is spun from 3 strands which gives an exciting and rustic stitch definition. DROPS Nepal is an easily knitted quality and on needle size 5mm/US 8 even larger garments are quickly completed. DROPS Nepal is ideal for felting. The felted garments have an even and soft surface. This is an incredible quality at a very good price.
NOTE! Since this quality is new, there are no patterns specifically made for Drops Nepal, but all patterns made for Drops Alaska can be used.[/INDENT]
