Substitute for Lion brand Homespun?
I DEFINITELY don't want to use Homespun but I like a pattern that calls for it - anyone know a good yarn that has the same gauge?

I asked the same question last month and Shandeh recommended this stuff called Yarn Bee Fleece Lite http://www.craftsetc.com/store/depar...t=66&subcat=38. I haven't tried it yet, but Shandeh rocks, so I'm sure it's awesome! She said it won't snag or bunch like Homespun. Hope that helps!

Red Heart has Light and Lofty which is similar to homespun, though it might be a little fluffier and thicker. They also have Aztec and Baby Clouds which look like they're close to it.
