Hi, Yes, the pattern does call for two yarns...the second yarn is so thin that you don't even realize that there are two strands that you are working with! The first yarn is an alpaca and the second one is like a mohair...it gives it the fuzzy look...But, I don't know why you wouldn't be able to use any other yarn....The second yarn really is so thin, it is just for the look, I think...
