Sub yarn for Noro Silk Garden yarn?
I fell in LOVE with this shawl! I asked the site owner what type of yarn she used, and she said Noro Silk Garden. While I think the yarn would be dreamy to use, unfortunately, mohair is quite itchy for me, even in very small proportions (and it's nearly half the fiber content for this yarn). Does anybody have any comparable yarn suggestions as far as drape and the beautiful striping? The gauge is 4 stitches per inch, aran weight, needle size 7-8.
I'm "the mean twin".

I'm on flickr, too!
I love to knit shawls...after all, a girl can't have too many shawls!
