I've had good luck with Encore for things I want to be washable.

All soft yarn pills to a degree. It's just the nature of the beast. WOTA pills badly--I saw a sweater that Amy was knitting and it was pilling before it was done.

If you're looking at the Valley Yarns, Stockbridge is really nice. I made a sweater with it and it has only gotten a few pills at the forearms, and it's very soft! The yarn isn't all that expensive, either.
