Yarn suggestion please
Take a look at this lovely drop pattern: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/vi..._id=13&lang=en

I don't want to use mohair. What yarn substitution would you recommand? I want something nicer than mohair.

Thanks in advance !

If you're willing to go to the expense...a lightweight alpaca would be lovely! Ummmmmmm...sooooooooo soft & luxurious!

Try silk. Look at the ColourMart silk yarns on ebay.
