Substitute Paton Merino for Peruvia?
I just saw this free pattern from Berroco for the Bramble Bag and loved it! It uses Peruvia which is 100% wool, so would Paton's Merino be an OK substitute?

Gauge is the key here. Peruvia is bulky and Patons Classic Wool is worsted. If it were a sweater you might have some issues, but since it's a bag the most that will happen is it'll be a different size. In this case the bag will be smaller. You could double it, but it would be more than bulky in which case the bag would be larger. Make sure you adjust needle size accordingly whichever you choose.

Thanks Jan, I can always count on YOU for great advice!


I might double up or just cast on more stitches.
