This was my exact thinking as well. I enjoy cotton for its durability and all, but as far as working with it... ugh, it splits too easily. I use a lot of synthetics/acrylic for stuff that will get abused and needs to be washed often or for amigurumi toys when I crochet, but I love knitting with wool. Mmmmm, wool.
