acrylic yarn (bernat satin ) for toddler sweater?
I just got my bernat satin from joann.com. I immediately fall in love with them. I love working with them. They are for an Afghan project.
Most of the stuff I have been knitting are sweaters for my toddler girl. I have only used wool for this purpose. But they are too hot for spring(I am in North CA). So I am thinking, can I knit sweater with Bernat satin for my girl? I have been told you shouldn't used acrylic for sweaters. What are the reasons behind this?
For you guys who have knitted or worn acrylic sweaters, what are the complaints?
