Yarn alternatives

Yarn alternatives

We love yarn and experimenting with different combinations. Over the time, we have compiled a list of yarns sorted by gauge to easily see which yarns can be substituted with each other.

Feel free to tip us on Instagram if you miss your favorite yarn or brand on the list.

Remember, you can also use the design tool to find yarn alternatives and design your own knits in any yarn. Click on any yarn in this list to make a compatible design.

MOHAIR 

Most types of thin silk mohair can be interchanged.

Drops Kid Silk (25 g = 200 m)

Filcolana Tilia (25 g = 210 m)

MOHAIR ALTERNATIVES

Several brands offer alternatives to mohair. For example, Alva and Alpakka Følgetråd contain alpaca fibers, that gives your garment a bit of fluff.
