Hello from Utah, I have your book Babes in the Wool. I searched and discovered Cleckheaton Country wool yarn has been discontinued. I am very new to knitting....can you recommend a similar brand to me to use for these dolls that is economical yet good? Thank you, KRidge
So sorry to take so long getting back to you. I would use any 8ply yarn (also called Double Knitting in the UK). You can use acrylic but the results are not so nice. Try to find a nice evenly spun yarn without too much fluff. It does not have to be expensive. The best I ever bought was a price brand yarn at a two dollar shop(one of those shops that sell all sorts of stuff very cheap). Otherwise try asking at the Fiona McDonald fan club on Ravelry.comall the bestFiona
