Substitute for Drops Eskimo

Recommended Posts

The guidance counselor at my daughter's school wants me to make him a hat. I love the pattern on Drops but I want to just get some yarn from Micheal's as I don't like buying things online plus I'd want to feel the yarn before I bought it.

 

Here's info on the Drops Eskimo yarn.

 

I don't know if he'll still want the hat to be wool so I'd like suggestions for different fibers of yarn.

The drops yarn looks to be a thicker type yarn, you could try wool, you may have to check the gauge where the wool won't be as thick as the drops yarn. Good Luck!!

I believe Eskimo is the same thickness as Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. You could also double up two strands of worsted weight yarn.
