Acrylic yarn
I want to knit some coffee cup holder thingies. There was a thread a while back (started by Feministmama I believe) that suggested acrylic yarn. I bought a skein of Red Heart but I cannot stand touching it much less knitting with it. What are some nicer quality acrylic or acrylic blend yarns?

coffee bras???

Lindsey, have you felt the Lion Brand wool-ease thick and quick?
I have some here and it feels nice and soft even though it's 80% acrylic. I made a coffee pot warmer (one of those plunger glass coffee makers) out of black acrylic and it works great. Forgot what type of yarn... could have been red heart.
