Note that this yarn changes character significantly after machine washing and drying, becoming much softer and more fluid. It also grows considerably, so make a generous swatch and wash it in the machine before starting this project. If substituting wool, choose a light worsted or worsted weight yarn with good drape. A version of this skirt in wool will be much more elastic.
