Warmth and wool alternatives
This question has been nagging me for a while.

I'm allergic to wool and other animal fibers
I keep hearing that it is precisely wool and animal fibers that make the warmest items, from socks to sweaters, etc......but I'll never really be able to wear these.

So.......in terms of warmth and the overall "cozyness".....are there fibers out there that can provide, if not the same warmth of animal fibers, something similar?

I want to get into sock knitting eventually, and am looking for a good alternative. And I'm also determined to knit Starsky someday, hehehehehe.

Any help will be appreciated
