Alpaca & angora are good soft options for those allergic to wool ;) Also, you say it makes you itch, but, there are some really buttery soft wool yarns out there - I wonder if you've only ever come in contact with the coarser stuff?
Yeah, there are some rough wool out there, but there is some super soft stuff too. Bamboo has to be the softest stuff I've ever touched though!
Thanks! The other thing I crocheted was a pair of baby/child pants (also known as longies in the cloth diapering group
) I made it out of crappy acrylic yarn that is super rough. It was just to see if I could do it. Then, I went back to knitting because I honestly like it TONS more.
