Yarn Substitutions:

Swish Bulky is a 100% fine superwash merino wool yarn. It is labeled as a category 5 bulky weight yarn; however, I find this yarn a bit on the thin side for a true bulky weight (closer to a thicker worsted, aran, chunky, or light bulky). So keep this in mind when substituting yarn (unless you don't mind if your project turns out larger than my listed dimensions). If substituting a different yarn, I recommend making sure you make a gauge swatch. Small differences in gauge can lead to big differences in project outcome. For more on gauge, you can read this blog.

Thicker Substitutes (project will turn out larger + you'll likely need to user a larger hook)
