Hi, 2sweetgirls38. I recently made a capelet from a pattern that was written for Homespun. I used Misti Alpaca Chunky, a completely different yarn in texture (not nubby like Homespun), but a similar weight, rated 3.5 stitches per inch on size 10 needles. That's the thing that matters, weight (and maybe drapiness). Any bulky yarn should be able to give you the required stitches-per-inch, so go crazy.
