I fell in love with a pattern, and have wasted half my day at work searching for the yarn used. I have discovered that it is a New Zealand yarn. Fiber Trends is the USA distributor, but the particular yarn I am looking for is not on the Fiber Trends website, and I can’t find it on the few distributors sites I have looked at.
The yarn is http://www.naturallyyarnsnz.com/y_montage.htm in the 8ply DK weight.
Has anyone here worked with this yarn? What is it like? I really like several of the colors offered. Can you recommend yarn that will knit similarly to this one, if I can’t get my hands on this. I am really bad at figuring out yarn substitutions. My preference is for a varigated yarn, but I am not dead set on that!
I am going to be knitting the Ruffles and Ridges shawl, as seen here. http://www.fibertrends.com/viewer/V5_accessories.html
Any one with experience with this pattern?
I wish I had my Ravelry invite so I could research this all there!
