I'm considering knitting the RibbyCardi, but I'm a bit reluctant to buy the recommended wool. My problem is, wool is itchy. 100% acrylic is itchy. The Plymouth Encore I'm using (75% Acrylic, 25% wool) is even a bit itchy when I put it against my skin. I'm not sure if its the wool or acrylic that's making it itchy. I know it's a subjective opinion, but first, for those of you who have used the Peruvian Highland Wool, do you find it itchy at all? I've read recommendations to use Merino Wool, which is a lot softer. I recently fell in love with Debbie Bliss' Cashmerino, but the cost isn't that great, and I've heard that it pills?
So any recommendations would be great! Here is the link
to the RibbyCardi if you haven't seen it yet.
