Patons 8 ply Herdwick pattern - HELP!!!
Just got back from the Wallan market and couldn't help resist buying a 'vintage' pattern book titled Patons 8 Ply Herdwick for outdoor kids (Bargain at $2!!). Pattern books are sooo expensive these days.
But the only thing is, I'm not sure what wool to purchase because they don't make this anymore.
I could knit a 'test' square from some tidbits I have at home, but I was wondering whether someone out there might know an equivalent or maybe point me in the right direction.
I know the names of some equivalents for some other wools, but not this one. There are a few lovely patterns in this book, so I can't wait to begin.
