Best acrylic or plant fiber (cotton/linen/etc.) yarn for afghans?
Hi there!

I want to make several throw blankets this winter, but I don't want to use wool or any wool blends. I'm especially interested in knitting some cabled throws.


I generally dislike acrylic yarn but I'm thinking about using it for some of the blankets. I'm would also consider using cottons or plant-fiber yarns.


Anyway, I generally just want yarn that is soft, not squeaky and that washes really well without pilling. If you know any acrylic or plant fiber yarns that fit that description, I'd appreciate your feedback!
