8 oz thick & think handspun 2-ply (oops, not homespun)

That is what the pattern states for the yarn. I was hoping it would be like the Noro Silk Garden stuff.

I like the sweater and the pattern of the yarn, now if I can figure out how to make it bigger, the pattern only lists a size medium.

Silk Garden isn't very thick and thin--just a bit.

Look for yarn that has the same gauge listed as the handspun (thank goodness not homespun ) as a place to get started.

www.yarndex.com is a good place to search.

I was thinking it might be handspun stuff, not a brandname.
