Vintage yarns especially UK ones never had the yardage on the label, even now in the UK it's a newer thing, mostly due to many UK knitters using American patterns, or UK yarns exporting to America.
Could you buy the recommended amount of skeins (presumably by weight) for your project, but ask the LYS to hold over some extra skeins in the right dyelot for you to buy later if you run out?
3-ply is laceweight in America I think
