Though I don't have a specific yarn suggestion, I would like to point out this (http://72.14.203.104/search?q=cache:igwx-UPGTVsJ:www.dailyknitter.com/blog/2005_04_01_archive.html+Lang+Yarns+Romance%2Byarn+ weight&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=3) commentary by the designer of that pattern (scroll about halfway down the page). Apparently, many were unable to find the specific yarn she used. She suggests any soft worsted weight yarn, but do go and read what else she said about the pattern if you haven't already. :D
