Recommended substitute in Vogue American Collection:
Trendsetter Yarns Amazon 21 ( 23, 26 ) 50 gm balls (147 yds)

Given the difference in yardage between the two yarns, it seems that the Amazon yarn would be used doubled. However this is not mentioned in the book where the yarn substitution is written.
