I’m thinking of knitting a big project …
but I’m a little concerned that I might find wool itchy and also that I’d end up ruining it washing it at some point.
I was thinking of trying to find another yarn than what the pattern was done with …
how do I compare yarn weights and specs to find something similar?
this one calls for:
12 - 14 skeins Briggs & Little Atlantic (100% wool; 136 yd/124.5 m per 4 oz/113.5 g) in Red
The Briggs & Little page says:
100% Wool, 3 Ply
14sts = 10cm(4") on 6mm needles
Put up in 4 oz. Skeins, this yarn is suitable for:
Knitting Outdoor sweaters, coats, mittens or hats
but since I’d need a lot of skeins, I can’t knit a little swatch for gauge before ordering the lot …
