I'm not sure what 'bounce back' fibers are. You probably can use just about any worsted weight yarn. What is the name brand of the yarn called for?

I love Plymouth Encore if you want a machine washable/dryable yarn. It's a wool/acrylic blend--feels much nicer than acrylic but the care is the same.
