Has anyone subbed a knitpicks yarn for blue sky bulky? I've got a pattern that calls for BSB which is 50% alpaca, 50% wool 45 yards/100 grams. Anyone have an idea as to which KP yarn would be a good substitution?

THANKS!

I just used Blue Sky bulky on a hat - it is really super bulky and is unspun. I don't think knitpicks has anything that even comes close. You might try searching for "bulky unspun", "pencil roving" or "bulky lopi" to find something similar from another company.

Thanks Dana!!
Interestingly enough- I just got an email from one of my favorite online yarn stores and they are offering 10% off for their one year anniversary AND they carry the yarn and the colors I want.
Yay!! :D
