I want to make a scarf for a friend of mine going to college in the fall. The school colors are silver and gold. I looked at some metallic yarn but that seems scratchy to me. Any suggestions on colors or yarns?

Thanks!

Yeah, most metallic yarns aren't soft. Is the gold a metallic gold or the color gold? You could use the metallic colors as accent colors rather than the body color...like maybe for stripes along the ends or something.

What school is this?

Also...I found this, but I haven't felt it personally so I can't say what it feels like.

Paton's Brilliant is metallic (lots of colors) and very soft. I used it for a shrug for her. My DD purchased some for me at a lys but I think I've seen it on line at Joann's and Michaels.
