I want to make my vegan friend the kitty hat in SnB. So I need a yarn sub that doesn't include any wool, silk, etc. Any suggestions?

Cheaper acrylic is ok, having in machine washable is good thing!

I don't know what type of yarn it calls for but have you thought about an organic cotton or a bamboo yarn? Those might be good options.

the pattern calls for worseted weight wool. I thought about those 2 yarns you mentioned, but she wants it in black and those yarns are usually out of my price range.

in 2 weeks baby! One of the corn containers is 2 wks behind their other ones and of course the colors I ordered are in that one. I'm so excited to finally be getting SWTC stuff!
