So, I just got the Loop-D-Loop knitting book from Amazon and I really want to make the Puff Sleeve Bolero.  Does anyone know any good replacement yarns for Needful Yarns' "Super" and "Extra?"  I'm a student on a budget and even if I wasn't, I can't find either of them anywhere online. i would really appreciate some assistance with this.

What kind of weight and fiber are you looking for? Varigated or non-varigated? Heathered or non-heathered? What gauge do you need/what needles are you using?

The pattern calls for Needful yarn's "Super" which is 12x16 st/4" on US 10.5 needles and "Extra" which is 18x25 st/4" on size 8 needles.  The closest yarn I found was Lamb's Pride bulky and worsted.
