Subject: Substituting yarn

For my whole life I looked forward to my retirement, when I could just sit around and do needlework all day. It's not quite that easy, but I do have a lot more time to crochet now. I dug out my very favorite patterns from the 70's and 80's that I've been saving and discovered that most of the yarns needed for those patterns have been discontinued! They didn't even list yarn weights, as we do now (3, 4, 4, 5 (chunky) etc.) Can anybody tell me what yarn to use for a pattern calling for Unger's "Fluffy"? And how about Bernat "Cool Crochet" light worsted weight yarn? Is there a book or key guide that I can buy that might guide me?
