Hi All,
I'm new to the site but a pretty experienced knitter. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a suitable substitute for Lion Brand Wook Ease Thick and Quick and Lion Brand Moonlight Mohair. As most people are, I'm trying to cut back on spending and I've been looking for sales but if anyone knows of any other yarns that I can substitute without much change that would be wonderful! Thanks,
Debbie:knitting:

Considering both those yarns are likely available at Joanns/AC Moore/Michaels/Hobby Lobby using 40% off coupons, I can't think what you could get for less money. :think:

You're just not going to do better than that, I think. The Wool-ease comes to 1.16 per oz. Encore is 1.57 per oz. Knitpicks' Wool of the Andes is 1.14 per oz., but all wool and cannot be machine washed like the other 2. The only option would be to use an acrylic.
