Cotton that won't stretch?
I absolutely LOVE knitting with cotton but have been really disappointed with the results. I have used a couple of blends - cotton & tencel; cotton & silk. But they both really stretch when I wear them. By the end of the day I feel that I'm wearing a sack. What's the magic blend? I would love to find something that still has the joy of cotton and little of the stretching problems, yet doesn't have the feel of acrylic. Suggestions?
