I have a pattern that calls for #4 wool, but just saw some lovely SOFT yarn in #2. Could I substitute the #2 yarn if I use two strands at a time?

I would appreciate any advice.

You may be able to use two strands for your project. What I would suggest  is to do a guage swatch with the two strands to see how it looks. If you are satisfied, then it will be fine.

Good luck and have fun.

Thank you very much. I'm heading out to add to my stash so I will be able to try it soon.
