I found a pattern that calls for Shokay Shambala [100 % pure yak down; 164 yd per 100g hank]. Not only is this yarn hard to find it is a fortune! Needing 14 hanks at $32.00 a hank would make a VERY expensive shawl!! So, I was looking for a substitute yarn and would love to see if anyone here would have one to recommend. The shawl gauge is 16sts/24 rows=4" square.
Thanks for any input.
