You could try a wool/acrylic blend, like Woolease or Plymouth Encore, or any other worsted #4 weight acrylic.

Please take off the Capslock, it's considered shouting on the internet and it's actually harder to read.

It knits at ~17sts/4 inches and is a wool yarn. Look for yarns that are worsted weight (of which there are many) and substitute one of them.
