Hi and welcome to KH!
There are plenty of yarns in that weight class. Are you looking for a nubby yarn like the Wendy PM or just a similar weight? Do you want to stay with acrylic yarn?

I would like the nubby yarn and I would like to stay with the acrylic, the look of the sweater would be better with the nubby, thank you, sincerely, Charlotte
