Easel Sweater yarn sleeve substitute

I’m late to the Easel Sweater party, but I’d love to make this. I can’t seem to find any of Jill Draper’s variegated yarn available, so what might be a good substitute, gauge-wise, for variegated sleeves on the Easel?

While there is nothing just like Jill’s amazing yarn, I popped Mohonk into the search engine at YarnSub.com and the first yarns that are variegated and that I am familiar with, and are readily accessible are Malabrigo Arroyo, and Manos Clara - both of which have differing ply structures from Mohonk.
The gauge for Easel is slightly open for a Sport Weight yarn, and these may not fill or plump the way Monhonk does.
I also looked at Ravelry, to see the Yarn Ideas, yarns that other knitters have used and subbed, and see a few others, Spincycle Dyed in the Wool looks really interesting - and I see that it’s available
