Yarn for big shawl - bulky, cheap, lightweight?
I was wondering if anyone had yarn recommendations for me...

I want to make this Big Snuggly Shawl for this winter (for use around my home).

It needs to be warm, and reasonably cheap, and fairly lightweight (as she says in the pattern, if I don't use a fairly lofty combo of yarns, I'll be wearing a rug!)

Some acrylics fit the bill but I have to admit I am just not a fan of acrylics for my personal use. I guess I'm a yarn snob although I hate that phrase!

Anyone have recommendations for me? I'd really like something machine washable too, but that seems to be asking for too much!
