Does anyone know a substitute (a cheap one) for Berreco Plasure yarn?

It would be GREAT if the substitute were available in Wal-Farts craft dept. as I'm in a limited area with limited transportation.

Here are the particulars of the project I want to do:

Cuff and Heel Flap

From "Knitty Gritty"
episode DKNG-204
Materials
2 balls Berroco Pleasure (130 yds/120 m per 50g ball; 66 percent Angora, 29 percent Merino wool, 5 percent nylon).*
U.S. size 7 (4.5mm) needles, one set of five double-pointed needles
Tapestry needle, scissors

Note: Remember that many yarns are seasonal and could be discontinued. If the specific yarn called for is not available, purchase a substitution yarn that comes closest to the specified gauge in your pattern. And be sure to make that all-important swatch to see whether the yarn works for your particular pattern.

Gauge: 5 sts and 7.5 rows per inch in stockinette st in the round on U.S. size 7 needles.
