Shinano is discontinued, but any aran weight tweedy wool blend should work well.

Description from Knitty.com:


These gloves fit hands approximately 7 to 8 inches long from wrist to end of middle finger, with palm circumference (excluding thumb) of 7 to 8 inches. They are quite stretchy and will expand and contract quite a bit, but if your hand size is very different from this, it will be necessary to adjust the pattern.

I love making gloves, but many knitters I have talked to think they take too long and are hesitant to commit to any project requiring double pointed needles, so behold: a better pair of gloves.
These gloves are worked on straight needles in garter stitch, and each glove can be completed in an evening or two. The yarn gives them a pleasing variegated color and the wrists elegantly close with little buttons.
