Jenelle--I don't think this is one that can be left up to me. I haven't used a totally acrylic yarn in a while.

The closest I come is Encore, which is 25% wool--maybe not enough to bother you?

How about alpaca? It's supposed to be hypeallergenic. The superwash wools have the little pricklies taken off, so maybe those would be more appealing.

And as Jenelle said, there are some nice cottons out there.
