Is there anything that doesn't 'set the bells a'ringing'
for those of us who are a little more sensitive?
I keep hearing that merino and alpaca are very soft and don't bother sensitive people. I am working on a sweater now that is 80% acrylic, 10% virgin wool, and 10% mohair. It was not expensive at all and I thought it was just right for my first attempt at a sweater. However, I think I will have to wear a t-shirt under it. It's a little prickly. That's assuming, of course, that it's wearable.
I have been window shopping online for months and am overwhelmed at the choices. It's hard to choose when you haven't seen and touched the yarn yourself.
