Hey Jan in CA!
You are so right about the types of yarn and its something I've been thinking a lot about recently.
Regrettably, I have to further restrict the amount of knitting I do with wools designed for fair isle because I have a raging lanolin allergy. My reactions are becoming more severe.
It's hard enough to knit with wool, but I'm also no longer able to wear sweaters like this
, even with a t-shirt underneath.
I need to be able to knit with superwash wool blends like Stroll
or cotton blends like Comfy
for anything that will be remotely clingy.
However, I think something like Roscalie
will be fine to wear since it's designed to have something substantial worn underneath. I'll risk losing the skin on my hands for Alice Starmore!
