I saw a pattern in The Prayer Shawl Companion that calls for Plymouth Apollo Thick and Thin yarn.  I don't know if I've lost my touch when it comes to internet searching or if this yarn simply does not exist but I can't seem to find it anywhere.  I absolutely LOVE thick and thin yarn but finding a lot of yardage for a decent amount of $$ has been difficult.  Any suggestions for yarn substitutions?  Any help is greatly appreciated!

I'm not sure how many yards you need for your project, but I did find a few sites that sell the type of yarn you're looking for. I think ebay will be your best bet price wise if you need a lot of yardage.
