I knitted some chemocaps for myself.. and I used a soft yarn, 50 % cotton and 50 % acryl. Very nice. I used the Odessa pattern from Grumperina. I also knitted the Shedir hat from Knitty, and used the yarn in the pattern. I love that cap too.
I friend gave me a Odessa knitted with silcalpaca, it was quite scratchy before I washed it. Afterwards soft as the softest thing!

I wish your friend good luck!
