Help with a yarn substitution, please.
I have a friend that wants to knit up a pattern which calls for Patons Diploma Gold yarn 4-Ply (see here for a description), but it appears that it's not available in this country... at least I've had zero luck finding it anywhere other than the U.K.

It's a DK weight, part wool & part acrylic. All I know about the pattern is that it's for a knitted toy where gauge and fit are not hugely important (she's making it for me so she won't tell me anything else lol).

What yarn would you recommend as a substitution? It's for a baby toy so a broad variety of color choices would probably be good.

Oh! And she is no where the yarn snob that I am so she will probably want something easily found at Michaels or Joann's.
