Kid Merino

Crystal Palace sells a yarn called Kid Merino. Unfortunately, my store doesn't sell Crystal Palace. They sell a Merino blend, but not in kid merino. Also, with all of the noro kureyon patterns out there and no stores selling it here...I give up on doing some beautiful patterns because I cant alternate my yarns.

Also, while we're talking yarns, I never realised how expensive those endlessly long throws and afghans were to make, like $100+. No wonder they're heirlooms!

So, Question:

When you're doing a pattern that calls for a fancy kind of yarn, how do you determine a nice/cheaper alternative yarn for that perticular pattern?
