For my second pattern, Plymouth 1416, which is a Kimono type jacket with a long garter stitch, I would like to use a wool blend yarn and would appreciate all comments on yarns suitable for this type of jacket.
I went into another ys yesterday and was overwhelmed to say the least by all the yarns!!!!!
Help!

That's funny..they have that one on display at my LYS and everyone loves it (including me). :teehee:

It recommends Plymouth Encore and it looks great in that, but any worsted weight yarn would be fine if it knits up to the same gauge. Encore comes in some gorgeous colors including some new tweeds so do check them out.
