America's Best by Pisgah is a fingering yarn that knits at 30sts/4 inches on size 1-3 needles. You can go on Ravelry (free to join) to see a large selection of comparable yarns.

Actually I saw yarns from thread to DK called America's best by Pisgah. Do you have a project in mind and if so what is the name of the pattern? A link would be helpful, too.

Any yarn that would use the same size needles and get about the same sts per inch as the pattern. America's best is sort of a brand made by the Pisgah company and has several different yarns that range in thickness or weight.
