Best yarn for warm weather and cables

My sister asked me to knit her a scarf. She chose a pattern with cables (Irish hiking scarf on raverly). The problem is that she lives in the tropics, and I think wool will be too hot, even for a cool day there. I've been reading and found out that cotton is not a good choice for cables because it stretches. How about bamboo or acrylic? Would these fibers be too warm? Would they work for cables? (I'll use a solid-colored fiber)
I'm a new knitter so I don't know much about fibers, if you have any recommendations, I'll really appreciate them!

Many thanks!!
