Last week I showed you what a lot of money will buy in terms of angora yarn.

Sticker Shock

If you despaired at the $15.95-per-skein pricetag for Adrienne Vittadini Angelina, there are other options. You may lose some quality and get a lower angora fiber content, but the end result will be attractive.

This week I show you a lower-priced angora blend alternative from Tahki. Despite the fact that it is 70% merino, there's no escaping the angora in this yarn.

From America's Heartland

I also review a new book from Vogue Knitting that profiles 10 of America's top knitwear designers and reprints several of their most memorable Vogue Knitting patterns.
