I really want to make this hoodie (it'll be my first sweater, too). I'm vegan, and don't use yarn with animal fibers. What's a good substitute?

Try www.soysilk.com.
And look for a yarn with the same guage as listed in the pattern.
Good luck.

Weird, so many of them mix vegan fiber with silk. What's the point in making it part soy and part wool, and then part shrimp and crabshells?  Huh

There's one that's 100% corn, at least, and it doesn't say what the bamboo is. Maybe it's 100%.

Thanks for the link. Smiley

ooo...my appologies...I didnt realize that they use those things. I honestly thought it was all vegetable.
I did look a bit closer and while their main fiber is called soysilk...it is all soy. But they DO have yarns that use animal products.
The bamboo is 100 percent bamboo...at least the fiber is...I would double check the yarn you are interested in to be sure it isn't a mix.

It's okay, dio, you didn't know.  Grin I can't order from them anyway, they're retail outlet only, and the closest one is in another province. Ah well!

Thanks for the link, rilana, I'll check that out.
