Yarn to replace Pashmina

So it's been a long time since I've updated this, oh how busy the school year gets.

My sister is pregnant, and I of course am so excited to start knitting her things. I have a great pattern for a blanket, but it calls for Pashmina, which at (minimum) $15 a skien just isn't in my price range. What would be a good worsted weight substitute? I was thinking Debbie Bliss Baby cashmerino, but I'm not entirely sure what the weight on that is. Any other suggestions?

I hope to be more active in the community during the summer.
