I think this topic comes up now and then on lists, but bear with me.
I'm looking for contemporary equivalents *by brand name* for 19th century
yarns:
Saxony, Germantown, "knitting silk", "knitting cotton", Zephyr, Andalusian,
etc.
I know how to closely approximate the yarn by working with gauge to arrive
at a general equivalent, but wonder if there is a list already worked out
with current yarns.
Robert.
