Well this is the specs for the Monterra:

Yarn Weight Heavy Worsted
Fiber Content Wool , Llama
Texture Plied
Gauge (st. /4 in.) 16
Needle Size(s) 9 US (5.5mm)

and here's the specs for the elann stuff:

Fibre Content: 50% Highland Wool/ 50% Llama

Gauge: 17 st/4 inches 5.0 mm (US 8)
Yardage: 83 m (91 yards)

So you definitely have less yardage and the gauge seems like it may be off some. I would think it is close enough though for a blanket...but i may be off there.
