I'm sorry, we've digressed from your original question. What are you making? Do you want inexpensive yarn or do you have in mind a project for which you will buy something nicer? I use a lot of Red Heart Super Saver and have recently found that my WalMart now carries Red Heart With Love which is softer but still doesn't split too easily; when knit it has a sort of velour feel to it. They're both worsted weight and go in the washer and dryer. Caron acrylics (I'm looking at a Caron One Pound right now) don't split too easily with the right size needle but tends to fuzz up more when washecd and dried. Still, I use it.

I should never overestimate my basic arithmetic skills.
