Yarn substitutions?

I swear I did a search and couldn’t find what I was looking for… :slight_smile:

I think I remember seeing someone post a website here that helps you figure out yarn subs? Did I dream that? Or, does anyone know of such a site?


The best site I know of is Yarndex.com.

That’s a great site, thanks! And WOW, thanks for the quick response! I am now totally overwhelmed… LOL

So, I guess the question I should have asked is, what’s a good (cheaper) sub for the Noro to make the booga bag?


I used cascade 220. It isn’t as fuzzy though, but it felts really nicely.

Lotsa people have made bags, even Booga bags with Paton’s SWS. It has long color changes.


Thanks for all the advice!! This board is great! :slight_smile:


I ususally use Wool of the Andes from KnitPicks.com

You have to stripe it yourself, but it comes out wonderfully!
