Yarn Recommendations for the Adult Surprise Jacket

Any yarn recommendations for the Adult Surprise Jacket? The instructions in The Opinionated Knitter recommend 2-ply Sheepswool, Unspun Icelandic, or Canadian Regal wools. What would be a good substitute?

  • Bartlett Yarn. Lamb's Pride. Green Mountain Spinnery Mountain Mohair. Noro Silver Thaw. Manos. Rowan Harris Aran. Blackwater Abbey. Lite Lopi. Nashua Worsted. OK, somebody stop me! Have fun shopping!

  • Depends how heavy you want it to be, but if you'd like something a tad less toasty than Mary Beth's excellent suggestions, I like Morehouse Merino. The Green Mountain Spinnery mohair blend is nice, too - I made a pair of mittens from it that I love. It gets quite halo-y with wear, if that's an effect you like.

  • Thanks so much for the suggestions. I need to mail order for most of those yarns, but will shop (online) today.

  • Anything. It's a good stash buster. She gives instructions to recalculate for any gauge.
