I googled Butterfly Super 10 cotton and got lots of sites. Here's one of them []

This is apparently a DK weight mercerized yarn -- just look for DK-weight yarn. If you like the slightly shiny look of the items knit with this yarn, look for cotton yarn that is mercerized or for yarn with some rayon, bamboo, or silk for the sheen.
