Yarn Substitution

Hi all,

I have this pattern for a jumper I really want to make, but the yarn is too expensive, itโ€™s Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed.

It requires heavy-worsted-weight wool or wool-blend yarn, with a 16 sts x 24 rows = 4" [10 cm] in St st using size 8 [5 mm] needles.

What should I use instead? I live in Australia, so cheap postage is necessary.

Thanks for the help. :slight_smile:
