Yarn Substitution
Hi! This is my first post to the forum although I've enjoyed reading answers to many of the questions over the last few weeks. I've been knitting for 40+ years ( with some time out when my kids were small).

My question: I have a pattern which was written for Paton's Anna yarn which is appantly not made anymore. I'm looking for a good subtitute, preferrably in a wool blend, but I'll use acrylic too. The pattern needs two shades of the same color ( like lilac & purple) and an ombre of the two colors mixed. From the gauge it appears I'll need a bulky (#5) weight.
any suggestions would be great with info on where to get the yarn.
