I haven't used Thick and Quick, but I've used Woolease worsted and haven't found it to pill. Generally, wools pill more than acrylic blends.

Plymouth Encore has a chunky weight, and that is a bit softer than Woolease yet also machine washable.

You might want to look at www.yarndex.com for a list of yarns the same weight as the Thick and Quick.
