Yarn substitution & pattern sizing - cotton vs. wool
Good morning!

I want to make this pattern by Vera Sanon. It's designed for a cotton/linen blend yarn. I thought to use KnitPicks Comfy cotton/acrylic yarn in Marlin color but it seems too plain. Then I thought perhaps I'd use Malabrigo Arroyo superwash wool. I can get the required gauge with either yarn but I'm not sure whether the fit will be different if I use the wool yarn. Experiences or opinions, please?
