beginner needs help picking yarn for scarf
Hello, I'm a new knitter. I want to knit a scarf approximately 12"x62" for my girlfriend using a medium weight yarn and a simple garter stitch pattern. Wool causes her to itch. I don't have any good yarn stores near me, so I have been searching online for other types yarns. I am getting overwhelmed and confused by all the options.

What other materials and/or blends would be a good substitute for wool? I'd like to find something that will feel really soft around the neck and be warm in the winter.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

-Robert
