I would like to use up some stash by making a child's sweater with all DK yarn; however, some of the yarn is sirdar snuggly DK which is 55% nylon and 45% and the rest of the yarn is sirdar Country Style DK which is 45% acrylic, 40% nylon, and 15% wool. They both have the same washing instructions. Would it be a problem if I used two different type yarns in the same project?
Thanks for any advice.

I think it would be fine as long as the Snuggly does not look a little finer than the country style when knitted up. I feel Snuggly is quite a "thin" DK.
The washing should be fine since they have the same instructions. If it is a striped project do a small part and decide if you like the look.
