I found a pretty bag on Interweave site that I'd like to knit. The yarn they are calling for seems to only be sold in the UK.

Here is the yarn...

Can anyone think of another yarn that I could use in place of this one.

Here is the bag if you'd like to see it. The picture is on page 2.

The yarn reminds me of the inexpensive one that Walmart sells "Homespun" that no one seems to like. I'm open to suggestions.

Thank You!

yeah I would think any boucle would work. Knitpicks has a yarn (http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/itemid_5420121/yarn_display.aspx)that is similar but no varigated.

I would think that any chunky boucle (http://www.joann.com/catalog.jhtml?CATID=82241&PRODID=80790) would work.
