I've been using Peaches & Creme yarn for my cloths lately, which I LOVE. But sadly The Wool Shack isn't getting any more stock. The only other Australian stockist I can find, says the yarn is in stock - but when I click to buy it says its not :S

So what other yarn can I use that is going to be nice and thick like that? The only readily available cotton yarn is Aus 4ply or 8ply (the Peaches & creme is the equivalent of our 10-12 ply depending who you ask). Will knitting 2 strands of 4ply together work??

I would imagine that putting two together would do the job. I didn't realize that Peaches and Creme was so thick!

Apparantly the ply's in Australia are different to elsewhere... we like to be complicated Laughing It says on the label 4 ply Worsted Weight - but its definitely a LOT thicker than Aus 8 ply.

Of course, the plys might be as thin as dental floss....
