Can someone suggest a yarn
I am looking for a fingering weight cotton blend with elastic like KP Dancing. I don't really like the the two colorways they have but I want to make the headband. Any suggestions?
Thanks

bump you up but I have no idea. I'd do a search on a yarn shop site and just look at the elements of yarns I thought may be suitable and assess against the one you mentioned.

How about this one: Maizy. It's a corn based sock yarn with a bit of elastic in it.
