so im trying to create leg-warmers for my sis as her christmas present and (
) heard about knitpicks.com before i bought the yarn. So the yarn called for in the pattern is 51% rayon and 49% wool.
knitpicks.com doesn't hav any yarn with rayon in it. so what should i replace it with? i assume they picked that blend for a reason so what does rayon do? does it make it shiny? does it make it stretchy? does it give it texture?
after asking myself this i realized knowing what all major fibers were known for/picked for would b good to kno in case this came up in the future. i'v heard alpaca drapes, wool stretches and is warm, cashmere is very soft. anything else?
