Alternative yarn for the Circular Shawl by Marin Melchior, featured in the Hot Summer Knits supplement, free with Knitting magazine issue 144.
The suggested yarn, Noro Shiraito, is not easily available within the UK. The closest alternative, suggested by Designer Yarns, is Noro Silk Garden Fine, which is 45% silk, 45 mohair and 10% wool. The gauge is 28 sts to 4 inches on a 3.25mm - 3.5mm needle (US size 3 - 4).
