Okay here's infor for pastaza
Chunky-weight 50% llama/50% Peruvian highland wool
132 yard / 3.5oz. (100 gram) skeins
4 sts = 1" on 9 US needles (5.5mm)

and for 220:
100% 4-ply worsted-weight wool
220 yards / 100g skeins
20 sts = 4" or 10cm on 7 US needles


Soooooo.... just so it looks even:
20 stitches of the pastaza = 5 inches
20 stitches of the 220 = 4 inches

I would say thatyou could get away with using only one strand of the pastaza. Why not knit up a swatch and see how it turns out (i know, i'm a swatch freak)
