yarn substitution
I found a really cute pattern for a wrap. the pattern recommends 2 skeins of Colinette, Art. Does anyone know the weight of this yarn and what could I use as a substitute??

Colinette Art is a single of Aran/worsted weight. 189 yards per skein.

Any yarn with a similar weight should be fine. Always make a swatch and measure gauge.

Keep in mind that if you use a different yarn you may get a different look even if it is the same weight. Doesn't make it any less beautiful though.
